The 30th International Symposium on Transport phenomena (ISTP30) was organized by School of Transportation Engineering, HUST combined with the Pacific Center of Thermal-Fluids Engineering (PCTFE), the Heat Transfer Society of Japan (HTSJ), and the Japan Society of Mechanical Engineers (JSME). It was held on 1-3 November, 2019, at Halong bay, Quang Ninh, Vietnam.
There were honor participants present at the symposium, such as associate Prof. Nguyen Phu Hung, Deputy Director of Department of Science and Technology of Economics – Technology, Ministry of Science and Technology; Prof. Dinh Van Phong, Vice president of HUST; Prof. Le Anh Tuan, Dean of School of Transportation Engineering – HUST; and up to 200 experts, scholars, engineers, and researchers from many universities, industry groups, and vocational societies of 12 countries all over the world. This symposium is well known as an annual and prestigious symposium in transportation engineering, thermal-fluids engineering with the aim of exchanging the newest achievements in research, development and industrial application. Research fields of the symposium are thermal engineering, fluid dynamic, noise and vibration in fluid, aerospace technology, micro-nano technology, manufacturing and material processing technology, combustion engineering, fuel cell and battery technology, sustainable and renewable energy technology.

At the symposium, Prof. Dinh Van Phong, vice president of HUST stated that “ISTP is a prestigious symposium that is held annually. All research fields of ISTP30 are very interesting, they are being focused on researching from basic fluid flows to industrial applications of transport phenomena. These are all interesting fields in science and technology. Therefore, HUST always advocates the cooperation between our university and ISTP30 under the sponsorship of PCTFE, HTSJ and JSME”. Professor also expected the symposium will become a useful area of scholars, researchers and engineers in exchanging mutually the newest achievements in research and application. In addition, it will become a communication and promotion for scientific cooperation in the world, which is to resolve even more difficult problems, but more interested in research works.
Symposium paid attendance of 145 international foreigners of 191 participants from 12 countries.
