dc.description.abstract The Eighth Huntsville Gamma-Ray Burst Symposium will cover all areas of GRB science with a particular emphasis on multi-messenger observations and theory. Topics will include prompt emission (observations and theory), afterglows (observations and theory), high redshift observations and early universe implications, central engine and jet physics, supernovae and progenitors, host galaxies, short and sub-energetic GRBs (observations and theory), multi-messenger observations, and future instruments. While the focus of the meeting is GRBs, we will discuss related topics, such as core-collapse supernovae, fast radio bursts, and tidal disruption events. en
