Lets plan SpaceUp Boston!

Connect with your fellow Space Geeks!


SpaceUp Boston is an unconference, so all attendees are expected to give a demo, present a talk, participate in a panel, or join a roundtable. Don’t worry! The unconference format will bring together people to discuss space-related topics in an open, friendly forum.

Students, professors, professionals, children and community members and space pets.

Boston will build upon other SpaceUp’s success, but for the Boston community. SpaceUp attendees love sharing, teaching and discussing the possibilities for space exploration. It provides a mechanism for people to share knowledge and enthusiasm, as well as develop new ideas for the future.

Talks and Sessions

This is not a traditional conference. The session topics and activities are suggested by the attendees. In addition to talks and presentations from big names in Space Exploration and technology, SpaceUp Boston provides an opportunity for every attendee to be a participant in shaping and leading the event. Be prepared to get involved and meet people.

Major themes include open astronomy, science fiction, ways to lower the cost of launch technology,  planning for human space exploration, and creative new robots to explore the solar system. Other topics include NASA programs, hobbyist projects, start-up companies, research, arts, policy, and business that have a of relationship with space exploration.

Information and Sponsorship Packet for SpaceUp Boston can be found here.

Poster, Exhibit and Networking

SpaceUp Boston organizers invite you to demonstrate and exhibit services, products and technologies that relate to space explorers.

A dynamic session is being planned that will offer a unique opportunity for posters, exhibits and hands-on technology demonstrations to be shared with researchers and field workers, students and academic faculty, government partners and thought leaders.
