Abstract

Approximately 74 presentations at the 35th International Cosmic Ray Conference in Busan, Korea pertained to space-based gamma-ray astronomy. These proceedings are a summary of those contributions and span a wide range of scientific topics. Four themes continued to appear: there is unprecedented coverage of the gamma-ray sky, the gamma-ray detecting missions and instruments are mature and well understood, new missions and instruments are coming online, and our current understanding of the sky is leading us to develop new experiments.
