Abstract content

Our understanding of high-energy emission from Gamma-Ray Bursts has greatly advanced with observations from the Fermi gamma-ray space telescope. I will review the Fermi observations, with particular emphasis on the surprising detection of both prompt and temporally extended emission at high energies. I will also discuss the prospects for detection of GRBs with the High Altitude Water Cherenkov (HAWC) and Cherenkov Telescope Array (CTA) experiments.
