3rd Annual Conference on High Energy Astrophysics in Southern Africa

HEASA2015 - (other heasa conferences)
18-20 June 2015
University of Johannesburg, Auckland Park, South Africa
The 3rd annual conference on High Energy Astrophysics in Southern Africa (HEASA 2015) aims to bring together multiwavelength observers and theorists with research expertise and interest in high-energy astrophysics from all around Southern Africa, supplemented by selected international keynote speakers. This will foster multi wavelength astronomy collaborations within the region of southern Africa and build connections to world-leading experts from the U.S., Europe, and Asia.
