What is a SpaceUp?

A SpaceUp is a space-related ‘unconference’ in which the delegates themselves decide what is presented and talked about. Before the SpaceUp, a basic framework is decided on by the organisers. On the day of the SpaceUp, the participants arrive and propose talks, discussions and activities they think will be of interest and which will stimulate interaction and debate. SpaceUps usually feature intense use of social media and are frequently video-streamed live. SpaceUps are real-time, collaborative, engaging and innovative.

What is SpaceUp GLIS?

SpaceUp GLIS is a SpaceUp being organised by the IAF the day before GLIS. Organised by the IAF Space Education and Outreach Committee (SEOC), the IAF Workforce Development/Young Professionals Programme Committee (WD/YPP) and the Space Generation Advisory Council (SGAC). The outcomes of SpaceUp GLIS will be reported to the main conference to inform the delegates there.

Who should attend SpaceUp GLIS?

Students and young professionals interested/active in either the space or information domains in areas such as technology, policy, science, regulation, security, development, etc. GLIS delegates who want to take part in an activity that not only actively bridges space and the information society, but is also is a prime example of the synergy between the two.
