HEASA 2021 was the eighth 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 included 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 astro-particle physics. HEASA 2021 was held during the period of 13-17 September, as an online conference with half-day sessions. In addition to invited, contributed, and poster presentations, recent Ph.D. graduates (Ph.D. thesis submitted after August 2019) may present an extended dissertation talk.
