Travel Information

Workshop location and schedule

The workshop will be held at the Berkeley Institute for Data Science (BIDS) each day (June 26-29) from 9am to 4pm. BIDS is located at 190 Doe Library on the UC Berkeley campus (see map below).

Lodging

Basic on-campus lodging will be provided for all participants for the nights of June 26, 27, and 28. Please note that this does not currently include the night before the workshop (June 25) or the night of the last day of the workshop (June 29). Although we may be able to include this, we cannot make that determination at this time. We will be able to provide more information to accepted participants. If we cannot cover the costs of June 25 and/or 29, we will help participants arrange on-campus lodging.

To ensure that we can cover everyone's costs, two participants will be assigned to each double-occupancy room. For a fee, participants may opt to get a single-occupancy room instead. The fee will be equivalent to the difference between the double- and single-occupancy rates.

Roommate requests and single-occupancy options will be discussed after acceptances are offered.

Food

Breakfast and lunch will be provided to participants for each day of the workshop. A survey inquiring about dietary restrictions will be sent to accepted applicants.
