Frequently Asked Questions

What is the refund policy?

Refunds, less a cancellation fee ($40), will be issued only if your 2-day ticket cancellation request is made before June 1st, or your single-day ticket request is made by October 1st. No refunds will be given after that time.

Is the Symposium at the Botanical Garden?

The Friday program is being held at the International House on the eastern edge of the UC Berkeley campus, downhill from the Botanical Garden.

The Saturday program is being held at the UC Botanical Garden.

Where do I park?

Parking for Friday’s program at the International House is available at the Stadium Parking Garage at the rate of $15/10 hours. (Check current rates.)

For Saturday’s program, spaces will be reserved at the Lawrence Hall of Science for attendees. Shuttles will be running to the Garden in the morning and afternoon. Carpooling and rideshare use is highly encouraged.

Is lunch provided? Is breakfast provided?

Yes, light morning refreshments, coffee/tea service, and lunch will be provided on both days. Vegetarian options will be available.

I’m a member. Can I purchase a ticket for someone else at the Member price?

Members at the Individual level may only purchase 1 ticket at the Member rate. Members at the Family level may purchase 2 tickets at the Member rate. Members at the Family Plus level or above may purchase up to 4 tickets at the Member rate.

When will single day tickets go on sale? Can I go to just the Saturday workshops?

Starting July 25, 2019, Friday-only tickets will go on sale.

Due to limited space, the Saturday program is anticipated to sell-out from 2-day ticket purchases.

If tickets are sold-out do you have a waitlist?

No, we are not maintaining a waitlist for 2-day tickets since we are past the refund date.

I want to attend a particular Saturday workshop, how do I sign up?

Once you have registered for the 2-day ticket, you will receive a confirmation email that will include a link to sign-up for your preferred Saturday workshop sessions. Space in each session will be limited, so we encourage you to sign-up early to guarantee your spot in any particular workshop.

I’m interested, but can’t commit now. Can you hold me a spot?

No. We anticipate this event will sell-out.
