Venue and practical information
The conference will take place on the UC Berkeley campus. Exact location TBD, most likely in Evans Hall. Note that Friday 3/30 is a campus holiday and the building will be locked; access information will be provided.
The closest airports are San Francisco (SFO) and Oakland (OAK). Berkeley can be reached from either one by public transportation using BART (about 1 hour from SFO, 40 minutes from OAK); you can walk or take a taxi or bus from the Downtown Berkeley BART stop.
Housing: Due to limited availability, hotel reservations will be made at several different locations near campus. Individual reservation confirmations will be sent shortly before the conference. All hotels are within at most 20-30 minutes walking distance of Evans Hall.
Travel reimbursements: Participants receiving travel reimbursements will need to submit all receipts (for airfare, the receipt must show name, amount paid and method of payment), and complete UC Berkeley’s travel forms, which will be handed out to you at the conference.
If you are not a US citizen or permanent resident, we will also need to make a copy of your passport and I-94 form. J-1 visa holders: you will need to provide a letter from your home institution allowing you to attend this conference and receive travel reimbursement. Please request it from your university’s international scholars office. B-1/B-2/visa waiver: please make sure to enter the US on B-1 or W/B (business) status, not B-2 or W/T (tourist); tourist status would restrict our ability to reimburse your expenses.
