Call for Abstract: High Energy Astrophysics in Southern Africa (HEASA 2021)


The High Energy Astrophysics in Southern Africa (HEASA) 2021 will be the eighth conference in the annual series “High Energy Astrophysics in Southern Africa”. The conference aims to bring together scientists from the African continent and beyond with interest in high-energy astrophysical phenomena. Topics to be discussed include theoretical, multi-wavelength, and multi-messenger observational aspects of astrophysical sources (e.g. active galactic nuclei (AGNs), galaxy systems, gamma-ray bursts (GRBs), X-ray/gamma-ray binaries, supernovae and supernova remnants, neutron stars, pulsars and pulsar wind nebulae, cataclysmic variables (CVs) as well as modern aspects of astroparticle physics.

HEASA 2021 is sponsored by the Department of Science and Innovation and the National Research Foundation (NRF) of South Africa through the South African Gamma-Ray Astronomy Programme (SA-GAMMA).

HEASA 2021 will be held on the 13th-17th of September as an online conference with half-day sessions. In addition to the scheduled presentations, recent PhD graduates can present their PhD research in a dissertation talk.

Registration and abstract submissions opened on 24th of May , the deadline is 29th of August, 2021. Please follow this link to the registration and abstract submission page.
