The Gaia mission of the European Space Agency has been mapping the entire sky for the last eight years. It has delivered two data releases (DR1 and DR2) and one early data release (EDR3) so far. The EDR3 release includes full astrometric solutions for 585 million sources and photometry for 1.806 billion sources with a limiting G magnitude of 21. The complete third data release (DR3) is scheduled for 13 June 2022, which will include a vast amount of data, including low/medium resolution spectra of bright sources. Since its first data release, Gaia has been making several discoveries and transforming the existing knowledge in Galactic and extragalactic astrophysics. So this is the time when we can discuss the outstanding results from its previous data releases and the contents of the newly available data from DR3. In continuation of our previous meeting on the Gaia mission, we are organising a meeting titled "Gaia Symposium: DR3 and Beyond" from 11th to 15th of July 2022. The main aim of the meeting is to discuss the achievements of the previous data releases and look forward to the DR3.
