Context and Objectives

Jointly organized by the International Space Science Institute in Beijing (ISSI-BJ), and the National Space Science Center (NSSC), the forum invites prominent scientists within a diversity of space science disciplines, i.e. space astronomy, solar physics, space physics, space earth science and planetary science. The two days forum aims to discuss and identify important scientific frontiers and what future space science missions could be planned in order to get answers to the related questions. As a new player in the field of space science, China is increasingly making effort to improve its contributions in this area since 2011, with several science missions, such as DAMPE, QUESS, successfully launched and now still in operation. In the near future, several other missions, such as EP, ASO-S, SMILE, are under development. However, what are the next steps in our science program is still open or needs to be planned in the near future.
