The future of Very High Energy Gamma-Ray Astronomy

SLAC is hosting a workshop Nov 8-9, 2007, on the Future of Very High-Energy Gamma-Ray Astronomy.

The goal of this workshop is to bring together an international group of scientists interested in the future of gamma-ray astronomy to define the direction of future instruments and discuss R&D projects for the next generation observatories such as CTA, HAWC and AGIS. … While some time of the meeting will be devoted to summarise the scientific motivations for such instruments, drawing on the White Paper for the Division of Astrophysics of the American Physical Society, particular emphasis in the discussion will be devoted to technical challenges, design parameters and projected sensitivities of such future observatories.
