We are looking forward to seeing you all in Oakland and Berkeley for ASAP/9. Information about airport transportation to downtown Oakland and about our conference venues can be found below. Please feel free to ask any other travel or transportation questions at


Our main venue is the Oakland Marriott City Center, where all panels, roundtables, and seminars will be held. There will be a floorplan for the hotel and its meetings rooms in the final program.

If you’re staying at the Marriott or elsewhere in downtown Oakland, you can take BART (Bay Area Rapid Transit) from either Oakland International Airport or San Francisco International Airport (SFO).


From SFO: board the Pittsburg/Bay Point train to 12th Street / Oakland City Station and you’ll be right in downtown just a block from the Marriott, and a few blocks from Oakland Chinatown and Jack London Square.

From Oakland International Airport: board the BART airtrain to the Coliseum station and transfer to the orange Richmond line; get off at 12th Street / Oakland City Center. The station is one block north of the Oakland Marriott.


For more on BART service to and from Oakland or SFO, please see the “Airport Connections Guide” here.

Note: The last North-bound train from SFO leaves at 11:54 pm; the last train from Oakland International Airport leaves at12:43 am.

Cab fare from SFO to downtown Oakland is rarely less than $85.00, and can be higher with traffic. Cab fare from Oakland International Airport to downtown Oakland is $40.00 and up.



Thursday evening’s keynote screening and discussion will be held at the BAMPFA (Berkeley Art Museum and Pacific Film Archive; general information here.) The BAMPFA is accessible by BART from the Oakland Marriott and is just one block east from the Downtown Berkeley station.

From the 12th Street / Oakland City Center station, board a train on either the northbound “Richmond” or “Warm Springs” line and get off at Downtown Berkeley. Walk east on Center Street and the BAMPFA is on the northwest corner of Center and Oxford.




Friday evening’s keynote conversation will be held at the James Moore Theater in the Oakland Museum of California (general information here.)

The Oakland Museum is about seven blocks southeast of the Oakland Marriott.
