10. High-E Astro Missions

Near-Term High-Energy Astrophysics Missions/Projects

This mini-symposium will include invited/solicited talks and discussions on the near-term (5-10 years) high-energy and gravitational-wave astrophysics missions/projects in China and beyond.  Contributions on future mission concepts are also welcome. Both ground-based and space-based projects will be covered.
