5th Huntsville GRB Symposium



The Symposium Program is now available.



The response to the Fifth Huntsville Gamma-Ray Burst Symposium has been very good. Over 220 contributions have been submitted. The Abstracts of all submissions are available below. The oral and poster constributions have been divided into five major sessions, listed below.

Orals are 10 minutes, with 2 minutes for questions. Invited talks are 30 minutes, with 5 minutes for questions.
Posters will be allocated a (1 x 1) m area.

Session G: Gamma-Ray Observations
Observations of GRBs at gamma-ray energies including temporal, spectral, spectral evolution, properties; other prompt emission at all wavelengths; global properties; statistics and distributions; observational biases.
