The series of Texas Symposia on Relativistic Astrophysics began in 1963 and are normally held every two years. Major astrophysical discoveries have been announced and discussed in the field related to relativistic theory of gravitation and cosmology, such as black-holes, quasars, neutron stars, X-ray binaries, gamma-ray bursts, particle acceleration, the cosmic background, dark matter and dark energy. The 29th Symposium will be the first ever to be held on the African continent, emphasizing Southern Africa’s role as the host of world-leading astrophysical facilities, such as the Southern African Large Telescope (SALT), the High Energy Stereoscopic System (HESS), and the future Square Kilometre Array SKA.
