The 2012 SpaceUp Houston Unconference will occur February 25-26 at the Lunar & Planetary Institute (LPI) in Houston, TX just a few miles from the NASA Johnson Space Center.
A space unconference is where participants decide the topics of the event. Everyone who attends SpaceUp is encouraged to give a talk, moderate a panel, or start a discussion. Sessions are proposed and scheduled on the day they’re given, which means the usual “hallway conversations” turn into full-fledged topics. The event will feature 8 discussion sessions held over 2 days in which 4 rooms are active for each session - that's 32 space related discussions that you can't get enough of.
We will have the return of Space Show & Tell on Saturday and plan to feature Innovations from JSC and the community. Sunday morning we will start with the T Minus 5 Talks (Ignite Style) that we have come to love. SpaceUp Houston is here to provide you a platform to learn about taking your ideas to the next level, so come and interact with people who have done just that. This year we have added a VIP Reception on Saturday for the first 40 people who register. Saturday Evening will also feature as astronaut presentation and an Explore the Solar System Panel focusing on manned/unmanned exploration.
