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 organizers. 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. Spaces Up’s usually feature intense use of social media and are frequently video-streamed live. SpaceUp’s are real-time, collaborative, engaging and innovative.

SpaceUp GLIS is a SpaceUp organised by the International Astronautical Federation (IAF) and the Space Generation Advisory Council (SGAC) the day before the Global Conference on Space and the Information Society (GLIS) being held in Geneva on 6-7 June 2016. The outcomes of SpaceUp GLIS will be reported to the main conference to inform the delegates there.
