The main aim of this Forum was to identify suitable key sciences that can be developed for CubeSats science missions and answer the question what are the CubeSat feasibilities for space development countries. The goal was also to develop CubeSats space education system to establish cooperative programs not only for the purpose of training, but also with a view to prepare collaboration for scientific or application missions.    
The Forum started with a short introduction to ISSI-BJ, APSCO, and to the Forum. Following that, the participants were introduced to the history of CubeSats, to COSPAR Roadmap on Small Satellites for Space Science, as well as the APSCO’s current and future plans to use Cubesats as a tool for capacity-building and university cooperation. The second half of the day was devoted to the topic of using CubeSats for space sciences. After the talks given by international scientists, there was a special slot for the students’ presentations and discussions. The first day of the Forum ended with a social dinner which enabled the participants to enrich their social network and continue discussions in a less formal environment. In the second day of the Forum, the participants studied the CubeSats technology issues for science, which was also followed by the students’ presentations and an open discussion of all the participants, as well as a summary of the Forum.  
The presentations given during the Forum are available for download at the Forum website:  Science Missions using CubeSats
An issue of TAIKONG, the ISSI-BJ magazine, devoted to the content of this Forum will be prepared and distributed to the science communities and space science institutions.
