The publication of Proceedings "book" has been suspended due to the pandemic of COVID-19. We have resumed the work to make the printed "book" available soon.

Thanks to the publisher policy change, the papers submitted and accepted to the proceedings have been published in regular issues individually.

12th symposium was over with great participants and contributions / presentations. A group photo and other photos from symposium are to be collected under the link "Symposium photo" in the left pane.

This year's "Hiroshima" Symposium (HSTD12) will be held at International Conference Center Hiroshima, Hiroshima, Japan, in the middle of December, 2019.
