The international Hinode mission was launched from Japan on 23 September 2006, and a science meeting has been held every year since launch, alternating among Japanese, U.S. and European locations. The fifth such meeting occurred during the rise in solar activity following a deep and extended minimum, and the theme of the meeting was "Exploring the Active Sun."

Studies of solar activity with Hinode were started shortly after launch, but were hindered by the subsequent paucity of activity from mid-2007 until 2010. Activity levels since 2010 have risen rapidly, allowing us to refocus on that major component of solar physics. There remain major scientific questions to be addressed in the near future with Hinode and with the other existing and planned space and ground-based solar instrumentation. This volume provides a sampling of the exciting results that we expect to be forthcoming in the next few years.

The meeting was attended by 171 participants from 13 countries. The conference included 13 invited talks, 38 contributed talks, and 115 posters. A novel feature of the meeting was the introduction of electronic posters, consisting of flat-panel HD screens connected to laptop computers and real-time internet access. Thirty two e-posters, selected by having volunteers sign up to supplement their normal poster presentations, were scheduled during the meeting.
