Concluding Remarks

J. Ziólkowski


Abstract As every year, the speaker presenting the concluding remarks has the problem of the wealth of too many interesting presentations. It is not easy to select just a few topics among many fascinating ones and any choice will be, necessarily, arbitrary. This year, I decided to make brief comments on astrophysical neutrinos, on cosmology and on gamma-ray bursts. My personal nomination for the hits of the conference goes this year to the giant flare of SGR 1806–20 (27.12.2004), which threw a new light not only on magnetars, but possibly also on a certain class of short gamma-ray bursts and to GRB 050509b - possibly the first short gamma-ray burst with a measured distance.
