During this Course and Workshop on Diagnostics for Contemporary Fusion Experiments papers were presented covering a wide range of diagnostics for fusion plasmas in conditions relevant to those required for a fusion reactor. The series of invited lectures provided an introduction to the basic techniques and reviewed the state of the art and recent developments in diagnostics on contemporary experiments. Diagnostic requirements and design studies for the next generation of fusion experiments were discussed. The main emphasis was given to diagnostics for magnetic confinement experiments but there were also reviews of diagnostics and recent results in inertial confinement. Although diagnostics for tokamaks dominated the discussions, it was apparent that diagnostics for reversed field pinches and stellarators are following very similar developments. Many of the papers presented deal with specific diagnostic techniques. In the closing summary, with the objective of providing an overview of the present status of plasma measurement capability, an attempt is to made to compare these different methods of measuring the main parameters of magnetically confined plasmas.
