The nearest BART station is Downtown Berkeley BART, followed by a scenic, slightly uphill, 15-20 minute walk to Sutardja Dai Hall. We recommend taking BART, as parking is extremely limited on the north side of UC Berkeley’s campus. Additionally, there are two commencement ceremonies (at 9am and 2pm) occurring the day of our workshop. If you do plan to drive, please visit this page for a map of nearby parking structures:
