Travel and Accommodation details:
Both OAK and SFO airports offer frequent train connections to Downtown Berkeley via BART. The free LBL shuttle stops across the street from the BART entrance. You want the blue route shuttle to B54. Walking up the hill is also an option, via Hearst Ave to Cyclotron Rd.

A great option for lodging is the Berkeley Lab Guesthouse. Our workshop will be in Perseverance Hall, located in Building 54 (B54) which also contains the cafeteria. It is right across from the guesthouse! You can see this from a map of a portion of LBL. Another option is the UC Berkeley Faculty Club, or any of the myriad accommodation options downtown and across the bay in SF. In any case, it is strongly advised that you book asap, as Berkeley is a popular destination in December. Note that espresso/coffee, breakfast and lunch are available at the cafeteria. Hours of operation are listed here. For dinner/refreshments on Dec 5, we will head down the hill into Berkeley.

NOTE* To make an online reservation at the Berkeley Lab Guesthouse, visit this page. Click the first radio button, "Visiting, studying or working at the Berkeley Lab," Then select "Physics Division," and use as the "LBNL Contact/Sponsor."
