Overview

The 2019 SAB meeting will be Friday, October 11, 2019, in 321 Stanley Hall on the UC Berkeley campus.

Agenda page coming soon, but we expect the meeting to begin at 9am and end no later than 4pm.

The SAB dinner will be Thursday, October 10 at 7:30pm at Corso, 1788 Shattuck Ave., Berkeley.

Meeting site

321 Stanley Hall on the UC Berkeley campus. It's about a 15-minute *uphill* walk from the downtown Berkeley BART station.

Travel and accommodations

Lourdes Montano <Lourdes.Montano@med.usc.edu> can help arrange your air travel and hotel in advance if you’d like, and we will reimburse local travel and meals. Or, you can arrange your own travel and/or hotel, which we can reimburse afterwards.

The closest airports are San Francisco (SFO) and Oakland (OAK). From either of those, you can take BART to Berkeley.

The SAB meeting will be at Stanley Hall on the UC Berkeley campus. It is about half a mile UPHILL from the downtown Berkeley BART and the Hotel Shattuck Plaza.

Recommended hotels in Downtown Berkeley

Hotel Shattuck Plaza

  • Address: 2086 Allston Way, Berkeley
  • Phone: 866-466-9199
  • Rate: UC Berkeley rate: $215/night. Same price for double or single.
  • How to book: You will need to phone and ask for the UC Berkeley rate--not available online.

The Graduate (formerly the Hotel Durant)

  • Rate: Average of $210/night for a room with one queen.
  • How to book: No special rates; you can book online
  • Description: No pool or fitness center. More distinctive than the similarly-priced Hotel Shattuck Plaza. A recent article about The Graduate noted, "Berkeley's quirky counterculture is represented by bong-shaped lamps in the guestrooms and a restroom urinal painted with the logo and colors of Stanford, Cal-Berkeley’s arch-rival." Known for having made a brief appearance in the movie of the same name.
  • Advantages: Near UC Campus and Telegraph Avenue, a colorful if slightly sketchy part of Berkeley.
