Onsite conference registration (badges, meal tickets, parking passes, etc.) will be open Sunday 3-6 pm near the lodging registration area (the red pin in the map) in Building 1. That building’s position at the top of the U-shaped driveway makes it seem as though it ought to be the main administration office, and so it is. A welcoming reception with light hors d’oevures and wine will be held 4-6 pm Sunday in this area.
On Monday morning, conference registration will move to the vicinity of the Joseph Wood Krutch Theatre, the site of our opening plenaries. Parking passes will be in your conference registration packet at that time.
This live zoomable map shows our part of Clark Kerr Campus and its immediate vicinity, including nearby hotels other than CKC housing. The blue line shows a suggested driving route from Downtown Berkeley BART (Bay Area Rapid Transit — the train from the airport) to help your taxi driver find your destination. Microphone icons indicate the lecture halls. Also shown are the Grand Hall, which is the dining room (breakfast and lunch are included with your conference registration) and the Grand Court, where where we will have poster sessions, exhibits, and coffee breaks.
