Special Events


Producer: Eric Gever, Flight Systems Engineer, Boeing

When: Sunday, May 18th, 2:30 PM - 6:30 PM  

Location: Rooms 201, 211, 214, and 217

SpaceUp is a space-themed "unconference" dedicated to bringing aerospace industry professionals together with students and local enthusiasts to collaborate on new ideas for space travel, access, and exploration.

SpaceUp is designed to be an informal, conversation-inducing event, providing participants an opportunity to demonstrate and share their space-related projects with the community, run their own sessions, and get feedback on their ideas.

As a SpaceUp participant, you are presented with an empty session grid and are encouraged to host your own session in one of multiple formats, providing you an opportunity to share your space ambitions and ideas with the ISDC community.

You may come to SpaceUp prepared with a personal presentation, run "ad-hoc" conversation style sessions, or just listen in on other ISDC attendees’ ideas for the future of space exploration.
