Open Space means organizing the agenda on the spot. The people present bring in their proposals for the agenda, and we organize the meetings around the proposed themes (Wikipedia on Open Space Technology).
The idea behind the meeting format is that nobody can predict the most important themes upfront, and consequently it is much more productive to organize the agenda around what the people present at that actual moment find most important.
The format includes one rule – vote with your feet. This means that people have to move from the actual group they are part of if they think that something more important might be going on elsewhere. Similarly people can also create new themes later.
