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. SpacesUps 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 organised by the International Astronautical Federation (IAF) and the Space Generation Advisory Council (SGAC) the day before GLIS. 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.

The SpaceUp GLIS 2016 will take place on Sunday 5 June 2016, in Geneva, Switzerland at the International Telecommunication Union Heaquarters in Room A from 09:30 to 16:30. The entrance will be at the Tower Reception,Avenue Giuseppe-Motta 54, Geneva.
