Lynx Synergy Workshop
21-22 March 2017 Stanford Accelerator Laboratory, Stanford, CA

The Lynx Synergy workshop was highlighted by a range of presentations and discussions throughout. In particular, the opening talks by Roger Blandford and Steve Kahn on “Science Questions for the 2030’s” and “Astronomy & Astrophysics in the 2030s”, respectively, were very informative and insightful. Slide presentations and/or video of the meeting are expected to be available in the near future.
