Students meet Eperts: SpaceUp Stuttgart is back!

SpaceUp is your unconference about everything space. It will return with the slogan “Students meet Experts” to the Space Center Baden-Württemberg (Raumfahrtzentrum Baden-Württemberg) on the 17th of July 2016.

This time, SpaceUp Stuttgart will be the Kick-Off event for the “Space Station Design Workshop (SSDW)”! It is a great opportunity for the participants and all interested people to get together and share their opinions and get an insider’s video 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.

SpaceUp applies the spirit of unconferences, AD-hoc-non-conferences or BarCamps. By this, our emphasis lies on unconventional organisational forms and without a pre-selected schedule of topics. This allows removing 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. This is the most powerful aspect of SpaceUp.

There is no admission, registration is open now on Please register today to secure your slot for yourself or your student team today. If you have hardware, you can show it to everyone in our show room. You find the registration form below.
