WHAT ACCOMMODATIONS ARE AVAILABLE?

There are many places to stay throughout Berkeley and San Francisco.  Our conference location on the UC Berkeley campus is a 5 minute walk to the Downtown Berkeley BART subway station.  Thus, any hotel near a BART station throughout the Bay Area is a good option.

For those wishing to stay close to campus, the Hotel Shattuck Plaza is walking distance to our conference location and the Downtown Berkeley BART station.  For a complete list of Berkeley accommodations, see: http://visitberkeley.com/where-to-stay.
