An complicated learn Workshop on Very excessive strength Gamma Ray Astronomy and similar issues used to be held at Durham, England in the course of August 11-15 1986. The assembly was once subsidized via the medical Affairs department of NATO and the collage of Durham. it's 4 years because the first Workshop devoted to excessive power Gamma Ray Astronomy used to be held at Ootacamund, India. At that assembly the advancements in Very excessive strength Gamma Ray Astronomy over a interval of greater than two decades have been said and the technique, boundaries, advancements and customers for extra progess have been mentioned. the prospective requirement for a follow-up assembly used to be transparent if the positive destiny foreseen for the sector on the Ooty assembly used to be right. The Durham assembly was once prompt to fill this function. even though the preparations for the Durham assembly have been mentioned as some time past as 1983 with attainable dates in 1984 or 1986, the eventual date in 1986 has proved admirable and has coincided with a time whilst additional advances were stated. a massive function of the idea for the Durham assembly was once the emphasis on a chain of Workshop periods, the conclusions of every to be summarized via a Rapporteur. the aim of those classes was once to supply a consensus view of a few of the vital parts within the box at a time of accelerating curiosity via the remainder of the astrophysics community.
