Abstract : The symposium attracted around 230 registrants from some 18 countries. A series of 10 technical sessions provided for the presentation of two principal invited lectures, seven additional invited lectures, and 67 contributed papers, selected from a considerably larger number of submissions. Special features of the meeting were the four 'brainstorming' conferences and the visit to the NASA-Ames Research Center. The complete proceedings, edited by the authors of this report under the title Recent Developments in Shock Tube Research, have been published by the Stanford University Press as an 830-page book.
