7th Annual Conference on High Energy Astrophysics in Southern Africa

HEASA2019 - (other heasa conferences)
28 - 30 August 2019
Swakopmund, Namibia

HEASA 2019 was the seventh conference in the annual series "High Energy Astrophysics in Southern Africa".
Its goal was to bring together scientists from the southern African region, the African continent, and around the world, with an interest in high-energy astrophysical phenomena. Topics discussed include theoretical and multi-wavelength and multi-messenger observational aspects of active galactic nuclei, galaxy systems, gamma-ray bursts, X-ray/gamma-ray binaries, supernovae and supernova remnants, neutron stars, pulsars and pulsar wind nebulae, cataclysmic variables, and modern aspects of astro-particle physics.

HEASA2019 was hosted by the University of Namibia and took place at the Ministry of Fisheries and Marine Resources Auditorium in Swakopmund, August 28 - 30, 2019.
