Gamma-ray binaries are variable sources of GeV-to-TeV photons with the peak in their spectral energy distributions above 100 MeV. There are only five Galactic gamma-ray binaries known and the processes which govern particle acceleration, non-thermal emission and the variability patterns are not well understood. We present here for the first time results of the VERITAS binary discovery program at VHE energies and a summary of eleven years of observations of the gamma-ray binary HESS J0632+057. VERITAS has acquired more than 220 hours of observations on HESS J0632+057. The results are discussed in the context of contemporaneous observations with Swift XRT at X-ray energies.

Metadata are provided both in "article" format (very similar to INSPIRE) as this helps creating
very compact bibliographies which can be beneficial to authors and
readers, and in "proceeding" format
which is more detailed and complete.
