    By E. R. Priest (auth.), Arnold O. Benz (eds.)

    Continuum radio emission and effective constitution (in specific millisecond spikes) have lately raised curiosity as diagnostic instruments for the translation of strength unlock and particle acceleration in flares. within the circles of the ecu sunlight radio astronomers, loosely equipped in CESRA, the belief of a workshop got here up meant for energetic observers of the impulsive part of flares in radio and linked emissions. The clinical organizing committee incorporated A.D. Benz (chairman), A. Magun, M. choose, G. Trottet, and P. Zlobec. The workshop used to be hung on may possibly 27-31, 1985 within the fort of Duino close to Trieste, Italy. The assembly meant to discover a typical terminology, to match radio observations with measurements in different emissions and to confront observations with theoretical thoughts. we've accomplished a consultant precis at the present prestige of the sphere and a transparent standpoint for the following cycle. This quantity comprises the experiences and a variety of contributions and prolonged abstracts of papers offered on the workshop. I desire to thank the neighborhood organizers, specifically A. Abrami, M. Comari, F. Depolli, L. Fornasari, M. Messerotti (chairman), M. Nonino, and P. Zlobec. monetary help was once graciously supplied by way of the Italian study Council (CNR). such a lot of all, besides the fact that, i need to precise my thankfulness to our host, His Highness Prince Raimondo della Torre e Tasso, for his important hospitality. we're deeply sorry to listen to of his passing meanwhile.

    'Galactic Radio Astronomy' was once selected because the topic of this Symposium, which used to be held along side the IAU common meeting that came about in Sydney in August 1973, principally since it is a really compatible Southern Hemisphere subject. This leads to half from some great benefits of a southern place in learning the Galaxy and partly from the lengthy organization of Australia with radio astronomy. Following the final meeting, the Symposium used to be held on the Surf air Inter­ nationwide inn in Maroochydore, Queensland, from three to 7 September, 1973. The convention members have been successfully remoted from the remainder of the realm through the Symposium, and the superb spring climate and geographical scenario resulted in the improvement of an strangely reliable rapport.
