The timing, on the finish of the COS-B challenge, was once considered as opportune, since it provides astrophysicists the prospect for interdisciplinary stories utilizing the present gamma-ray facts base (e.g. comparability with infrared, radio, X-ray, and so on. astronomies), in addition to for theoretical stories. the following new release of gamma-ray detectors will not really be in operation for one more five to ten years, and as a result it's was hoping that the continuing of this assembly can be utilized (in the intermediate time) as a foundation for extra experiences, as a stimulation for extra theoretical paintings and as a huge contribution for outlining the goals and operation of destiny gamma-ray missions. The interrelationship with different branches of astronomy, the astrophysical implications and the research of appropriate actual techniques utilizing to be had measurements within the near-Earth atmosphere have been very important result of the assembly. Many people contributed to the good fortune of the assembly, specifically all those that both awarded a contribution and/or took half within the discussions.
