Summary 
This proceedings volume records the advances in quantum beam physics since the first meeting in Monterey (1998). In addition to further progress regarding quantum effects in beam dynamics, photonelectron interaction in beam handling, beam phenomena under strong fields, and quantum methodologies in beam physics, the newly introduced topics  the physics of condensed beams as well as astrobeam physics and laboratory astrophysics  have also been well documented by world experts in the field. This book should be a valuable reference to those who are interested in the joint frontiers of beam physics and other fields such as astrophysics and condensed matter physics
