SpaceUp is a space unconference, where participants decide the topics, schedule, and structure of the event. Everyone who attends SpaceUp is encouraged to give a talk, moderate a panel, or start a discussion. Sessions are proposed and scheduled on the day they’re given, which means the usual “hallway conversations” turn into full-fledged topics.

Topic: Space !

Any topic can be presented as long as it satisfies the following conditions:

  • it’s about Space
  • it’s in English
  • it’s within the time frame (5 – 15 – 30 min)

VIP guests

Well known space professionals, such as astronauts, scientists, engineers, managers will share their passion with the participants!
