Practical information

The conference will be held at California State University East Bay (CSUEB), Hayward Hills Campus, 25800 Carlos Bee Blvd., Hayward, CA (Area Map).

The Conference Services are located in the Pioneer Heights Student Housing at the south-eastern end of the campus (Campus Map), with housing, meeting room, and dining commons all close to each other. For accommodation we have decided on single-occupancy bedrooms for all attendees at the conference. These are grouped in 4-bedroom apartments with 2 bathrooms, a kitchen, and a living room in each apartment. For the address while staying at the conference, and regulations on smoking and pets, see the Conference Services FAQ.

Attendees with special dietary requirements or restrictions should let us know as soon as possible, so that their needs will be met.

Travelling to Hayward

The San Francisco Bay Area has three international airports, the closest to Hayward being the Oakland Airport, just 13 miles to the north-west. The San Francisco Airport is across the bay to the west about 25 miles away by car. (The San José Airport 30 miles to the south is less convenient for getting to Hayward.)

For travel from outside the U.S.A. please consult the Customs and Border Protection webpage For International Visitors. This includes information on the documents you will need to enter the country.

To get from the Oakland (or San Francisco) airport to the Hayward Campus by public transport you can use the local train system, which is referred to as BART (pronounced like the personal name), and take a bus (AC Transit) up the hill to the campus. The Oakland Airport Bart station is near the terminals, from which you will take the train to the Colliseum station and transfer to a train going south (toward Fremont), and get off at Hayward, just two stations away. (From San Francisco Airport Bart station take the train to Balboa Park station and transfer to a train going to Fremont, which will head north through San Francisco before crossing under the Bay and heading south, and you will get off at Hayward station.) The AC Transit bus line to take from the Hayward Bart station to the CSUEB Campus is Line 60 (Route Map). One of the bus stops on campus is right across from the Pioneer Heights Student Housing (see Campus Map).
