The 4th Heidelberg International Symposium on High Energy Gamma-Ray Astronomy took place July 7-11, 2008, in Heidelberg, Germany.
The basic objectives and the format of the symposium have been similar to the three previous (1994, 2000 and 2004) conferences. All the major observational and theoretical aspects of the field with an emphasis on the high (GeV) and very high (TeV) energy intervals of the electromagnetic spectrum have been covered.
The topics of the Symposium have ranged from the origin of galactic and extragalactic cosmic rays to the physics and astrophysics of compact objects (Pulsars, Microquasars, AGN) and cosmological issues related to Large Scale Structures, Dark Matter and Extragalactic Background Radiation. Finally, we have had a special session for discussion of scientific objectives and practical developments related to the next generation of ground-based gamma-ray detectors.
