Various topics on observations/theories on gamma-ray bursts and afterglows were delivered. Recent progress in the Swift era, along with many unsolved problems, was summarized, Special attention was paid to some key problems, such as the GRB classification/progenitors and the nature of prompt emission/afterglow. Many first-hand data and theoretical models were presented for the recent interesting naked eye burst GRB 080319B. Several upcoming missions, e.g. SVOM, JANUS, POLAR, POET, were highlighted.
