We are looking forward to welcome you to SpaceUp Suttgart, 23.07.2017,

We are proud to announce that the 3rd SpaceUp Stuttgart unconference will return on 23 July 2017 at the Space Center Baden-Württemberg (RZBW), using the motto “Ad Astra via Stuttgart”. Once again, SpaceUp Stuttgart will be the introductory event to the Space Station Design Workshop (#SSDW) (separate registration open until 30th April) of the Institute of Space Systems, an international student workshop to create the next Space Station.

It is a great opportunity for the participants and all interested people to get together and share their opinions and get an insider’s view into research and industry work. The SSDW will bring an international and diverse touch to our unconference. Due to the cooperation with the SSDW, we already have a line-up with lots of awesome presentations by researchers, industry insiders and of course by local student teams. You are invited to enrich this SpaceUp by adding your own topics and ideas.


Current Preliminary Line-Up – Updated additional line-up above!!

  •   Prof. Reinhold Ewald (German ESA-astronaut)
  •   Aerospace Lab e.V.
  •   KSat e. V.
  •   Hybrid Engine Development (HyEnD)
  •   Sojus-Simulator
  •   Your student team! Your Bachelor/Master/Doctoral-thesis! Your company/start-up!

What is a SpaceUp?

SpaceUp applies the spirit of unconferences, Ad-hoc-non-conferences or BarCamps. By this, our emphasis lies on unconventional organisational forms and professional exchange without a pre-selected schedule of topics. This breaks down the separation between the audience and the presenter. Everyone is a presenter. Everyone can decide at the location during the event whether or not he or she wants to talk about his/her favourite space topic, the master thesis, a student project or what he/she is working on during the day job. Standard presentations are 20 minutes in length alongside the shorter T-5 talks, or send us a 60-seconds-to-land video. You’re arriving with a question or an unsolved problem? Open a discussion round and exchange your thoughts with others. This is the most powerful aspect of SpaceUp.

Please register today to secure your slot for yourself or your student team today. If you have hardware, we encourage you to show it to everyone in our show room.

Diverse Past Line-Up

Many more participants had attended last year, most of which are likely to return with their latest projects.
