DIRECTIONS
(http://linguistics.berkeley.edu/~bfg2000/Directions.html)


HOW TO GET AROUND BERKELEY CAMPUS

The campus of UC Berkeley is located on the western slope of a hill,
so for the sake of convenience "up" on the following map ...

 http://linguistics.berkeley.edu/~bfg2000/campus.jpg

... is up the hill (east) and "down" is down the hill (west). A very
important landmark of the Berkeley campus is the "Campanile" (also
known as "Sather Tower"), circled yellow on the map. The conference is
just downhill (and south) from it on South Drive. 

HOW TO GET TO THE DORMS

The dorm spaces that have been reserved for many conference
participants are in the Unit 3 Residence Hall Complex, marked on the
map in blue. Unit 3 is located one block south of campus on 2400
Durant Ave. (east/uphill of Dana St.) (In case you arrive by car note
that both are one-way streets: Durant: west-east (uphill), Dana:
north-south.)

HOW TO GET TO THE CONFERENCE

The conference takes place in 370 Dwinelle Hall, a red cross marks the
spot on the map. 370 Dwinelle Hall is located on the TOP floor
of the building and is most easily reached via the main entrance on
the east/uphill side of the building through Dwinelle Plaza (indicated
by a red arrow). Upon entering Dwinelle, turn right. Toward the end of
the hallway there is an elevator on your left which you should take to
the top floor ("F" level). Alternatively use the stairs on your
right. Upon exiting from the elevator make a U-turn. Access to the
conference hall is through 371 Dwinelle, where registration,
booktables, etc. are located. 

(Getting lost in Dwinelle Hall is virtually a mandatory part of the UC
Berkeley experience (so maybe I shouldn't spoil the fun ...). In order
to understand that building (if that is at all possible), you should
know that it actually consists of two separate units that happen to
share the same name and are physically connected to each other
somewhat tenuously. There is first a classroom wing to the south (all
room numbers have two or three digits) and an office wing on the north
(all room numbers have four digits). (To keep things interesting, an
exception to this numbering rule is the conference room which has a
three-digit number but which is located in the office wing ...))
