For general attendees: The Dark Matter 2014 symposium will be held in the Northwest Campus Auditorium, a theater-style room on the west side of campus in Covel Commons, just behind Sproul Hall. An interactive campus map will show you the location. Click the Navigating UCLA link in the main menu for more details about the UCLA campus.
The first session on the morning of Wednesday February 26 begins at 10am, which should allow you to acquaint yourself with the campus and find your way up Bruin Walk and across the street to the auditorium. Registered speakers may pick up their name badges and information packets, as well as enjoy a continental breakfast set up in the auditorium lobby at 9:30am. Please note: no food, hot beverages, or sodas are allowed in the auditorium proper, although bottled water is permitted.
Lunches will be served to registered participants in the adjacent Salon A of Covel Commons and Rooms A & B in nearby Carnesale Commons. Sessions on Thursday and Friday morning will begin at 8am. Continental breakfast will be available from 7:30am. There will also be coffee breaks on mornings and afternoons in the lobby.
The reception Wednesday evening will be in Salon A. The banquet Thursday February 27 will be on the east side of campus in the California Room at the Faculty Center.
