The idea is to be as spontaneous as possible. Traditional Powerpoint presentations are discouraged (but not forbidden) and things like panel, round-tables, demos, etc., are encouraged. The event will be “seeded” with several people willing and ready to give talks. While every attendee is urged to give a talk (or plan a session of just questions!) we will have speakers who are experts on space exploration to ensure the time you spend at SpaceUp Phoenix is worthwhile and who can also answer your questions and be on your panels. The whole vibe is very fun and informal.
