A symposium in recognition of the achievements of PEP-II and BABAR is scheduled for October 27, 2008. The program of the symposium will cover a wide range of topics, including a retrospective on bottom, charm and tau physics, PEP-II and BABAR, together with a look forward to the future of heavy flavor physics.

The Symposium precedes the ICFA Seminar on "Future Perspectives in Particle Physics" from 28-31 October and coincides with the BABAR Collaboration Meeting, 26-30 October. Both events take place at SLAC.
