A Day at SpaceUp
Wondering what it’s like to spend a day at SpaceUp? If you’ve never been to one, you’re in for quite a treat!
Arriving at SpaceUp
SpaceUp LA will officially start at 11:00 AM on Saturday, November 9th. Upon arrival, you will receive your specially-designed SpaceUp LA t-shirt, badge, agenda, and other fancy gifts. After a few snacks, a quick intro, and a chance to get to know you and the other participants, you will be confronted with an empty Session Grid:
It won’t be empty for long, however! SpaceUp participants will start filling the board with sticky notes. The notes contain discussion topics about, well, anything you want! Itching to talk about your new idea for space travel? Have a video or computer demo you want to share? Maybe you just met some other space enthusiasts at another discussion and want to bring your discussion to a bigger group. At SpaceUp, you can do it all, because YOU, the attendees, are the participants! You are the ones who can make things happen and we’d love to hear
what you want to say!
For most of the afternoon, you will be hopping around to several ���Pods” that are 40 minutes in length. These pods may be set up any way you like. For example, round-table discussions are one of the most popular Session formats:
Other popular session formats include demos (we have projectors available in
most pods), a panel of experts, or a Q&A session with other attendees who may have something very special to share. If you have an extra-indulging topic, participants have scheduled 2 consecutive Sessions in a row to keep the conversation going!

Sessions at SpaceUp are conversations, just like every conversation you’ve had (or wanted to have) at any other conference.
A few pre-planned sessions will be scheduled during various parts of the unconference. One of these, unique to SpaceUp LA, is Hardware Alley. Have a really cool space gadget to show off? SpaceUp participants brought in pretty nifty things to show, such as high powered rockets and scale mock-ups:

The Law Of Two Feet
There are lots of sessions going on at once, so you won’t be bored. Every session has an opportunity for you to learn something or contribute. If you find yourself not interested in the topics on the board, this is a great opportunity for you to start a topic you’re interested in — and others will be sure to follow you to your discussion! If all else fails, go get a snack and listen in on the

Meals, Snacks, and Socializing
At SpaceUp LA, food is very important! There will be plenty of it, and it’ll be available at all times. Participants are encouraged to get up and grab snacks and drinks whenever they like — feel free to bring it to Sessions, or just enjoy a quick snack during breaks.
All participants will be provided with four (4) meals: lunch and dinner on Saturday, breakfast and lunch on Sunday. Think casual, buffet-style meals (no catered banquet hall format here) — meals you can grab and walk and talk with other participants.
If you’re itching to give a presentation with slides, we have just the format for you: it’s called Ignite. Each speaker gets 5 minutes to talk, with 20 slides that rotate automatically every 15 seconds.
At SpaceUp, we
call our Ignite-format talks T minus 5. These are the only talks that are scheduled beforehand, because they take a bit more preparation and planning than most unconference sessions. They’re definitely worth the effort.

How (and What) To Prepare Beforehand
This may sound like a lot to take in, but you’ll get used to it in no time at all. There will be plenty of unconference veterans
on hand to help out, and we’ll have a whole group of volunteers to help keep things moving smoothly.
If you don’t have time to prepare anything before you go to SpaceUp, don’t worry. Just be there in time for the opening session and you’ll have plenty to do and contribute. If you want to prepare a talk beforehand—and it isn’t a T-5 talk (see above)—write it up as a set of notes or questions, or even bring a PowerPoint presentation if you’d like. Do bring props, posters, diagrams, or demonstration
equipment if you have it!
