The TRIZ Symposium has been the main activities for JTS to penetrate TRIZ into Japan with collaboration of the international TRIZ community.  We wish it be fruitful this year again.  Nakagawa is not involved in organizing the Symposium 2013.  The new JTS leaders are going to shift the Symposium slightly more national and less international in nature.

Note:  The Symposium organizers this year will not assist authors to translate their abstracts and presentation slides between English and Japanese.  Thus you will not see the abstracts nor slides in English for some (or many) of presentations by Japanese authors, while Japanese audience will not see/read the abstracts nor slides in Japanese for most presentations by overseas authors.  The CFP implies this point clearly but does not remark it explicitly.  (Toru Nakagawa, Feb. 25, 2013)

Advance Agenda, Abstracts of all the presenters, and Call for Participation have been posted in the JTS site both in Japanese and in English on Jun. 14, 2013.  [Second Advance Agenda (with very minor revisions) is posted in the JTS site on Jul. 27, 2013. (Aug. 4, 2013)

Note:  Abstracts in English translation are posted for all the presentations, by the support of the organizers. (T. Nakagawa, Jun. 22, 2013)
