Bay Area Particle Theory Seminar

Bay Area Particle Theory Seminar

The Bay Area Particle Theory Seminar aims to bring together particle theorists in the Bay Area, including UC Santa Cruz, SLAC, Stanford, San Francisco State, Berkeley, LBNL, Livermore, U. of Pacific, and UC Davis to get together for an afternoon, hear a few talks, and discuss physics.

The first (in the 21st century) was held in the Nob Hill Room at the Seven Hills Conference Center of San Francisco State University, on October 4, 2013, and for now it is planned as a biannual event.

Directions to SFSU

The Seven Hills Conference Center is located at 800 Font Blvd, San Francisco, CA 94132
(On the map of SFSU it is in F2)

BY CAR:  (Directions to the parking lot)

From the East: Take I-80 across the Bay Bridge, then 101 South to I-280 South. Take the CA-82 N exit toward CA-1 N/San Jose Ave/Mission St, turn right onto Sagamore St, and then slight right onto Brotherhood Way.
From the South: Take I-280 North. Take a left exit to continue on CA-1 N/Junipero Serra Blvd, follow signs for CA-1 N/19th Avenue/Golden Gate Bridge, then bear right onto the ramp to Brotherhood Way.

On Brotherhood Way, continue until it ends and then take a right to merge onto Lake Merced Blvd. At the second stoplight make a right onto State Drive. At the end of State Drive is the Public Parking Lot ("Lot 20"). All-day parking is available for $8 (the machines take exact change or credit cards).

To get to the Seven Hills Conference Center: From Lot 20, walk back (West) along State Drive, past the A.S. Children's Center and past the back entrance (there is a sign) of Seven Hills. Take the small staircase around to the front entrance of Seven Hills. If you arrive around noon, you can join us for lunch at the dining center next door.


From the Daly City BART station there is a free SFSU shuttle every 15 minutes. The MUNI bus 28 also goes from the Daly City BART station to campus, and if you transfer from the BART, it's free using clipper. From either the 28 or the Shuttle get off at 19th and Holloway, and walk West to the Conference Center. Allow ~20min from the BART station.
