5th International Symposium on Development and Application of Semiconductor
Tracking Detectors

The 5th International Symposium on Development and Application of
Semiconductor Tracking Detectors (5th STD Hiroshima) will be held on June
14 - 17 at the Essor Hiroshima Hotel in Hiroshima, Japan.
On behalf of organizing committee we would like to sincerely invite you to
the symposium and ask you to contribute a paper.

The last symposium was held on March 2000. Since then, we have certainly
accumulated a vast collection of topics worthy of a new meeting. The
primary goal of this symposium is to bring experts together for discussions
of past experiences (good and bad) and allow them to scrutinize new ideas
while still in the development stage.

In addition to the above goals, we would like to summarize and review the
technologies established through this Symposium in the past, and to
identify new directions, new materials, new ideas to be developed in the
coming years.

Attached is the proposed program. Please have a look and submit your
contribution for the different sessions. Most of the topics will be
introduced by invited speakers. There will be ample time for discussions of
the posters during coffee/tea breaks.
