The main theme of the symposium was Singularity Theory in a broad sense, including complex and real algebraic varieties, functions and mappings, and topology of singularities. The symposium was based on long-term interaction of singularity theorists in France, Japan, Vietnam and other countries. The reader can find recent trends and progresses in Singularity Theory. The volume is especially useful for those who would like to overview recent topics in these areas. In particular, the three surveys will serve as good introductions to the topics for young researchers. All the papers in the volume are original and have been carefully peer-reviewed.
