This year's workshop will be held in the Simularium, Engineering 2 Building in the School of Engineering. Click here for a map of this area of campus.
If you will be participating in AGORA, August 15–18, it will be held at ISB 102.
No housing will be available on campus this summer. We recommend that if you plan to attend the conference, you arrange for lodging early. Although hotel policies vary, at the time you make your reservations you should ask if there is a UCSC rate. List of local lodging options.
Please enter the UCSC campus through the West Entrance and follow the signs toward Core West Parking Lot. Follow the directions to the Simularium where the workshop is held and there will be a check-in table there on Monday morning. If you have paid for parking, you can pick your parking permits on the third floor of the parking lot; if you still need to pay for parking, you will be able to do so there as well. Keep in mind that if you have a car on campus you must have a permit; the officers ticket regularly, even in the summer. Once you have parked, there will be signs to the Simularium, Engineering 2 Building. Map (directions from Core West to the Simularium)
Shuttle services from the airport to campus or to your lodging are available for a fee:
Public transportation options to, from, and around Santa Cruz can be done through the Santa Cruz Metro.
If you will be staying an additional week for collaboration, either before or after the workshop, you may want to try the following suggestions for a bit longer term and possibly less expensive housing:
In addition we have a listing from Academic HR, which contains many housing options for extended stays, typically in faculty/UCSC employee houses. This list is available upon request. For example, there is a 3-bedroom house near the beach and UCSC that is available for extended stay. Contact Aaron, firstname.lastname@example.org.
For questions about accommodation contact Sue Grasso, email@example.com.
UC-HIPACC (University of California High Performance AstroComputing Center) is co-sponsoring the 2014 Galaxy Formation Workshop.
A major goal of UC-HIPACC is to encourage collaboration on computational astrophysics between groups at UC campuses and the affiliated DOE Labs. We are willing to help with lodging support for UC students interested in attending the Galaxy Workshop. If you are interested in UCSC housing support please send an email to Sue Grasso at "firstname.lastname@example.org"

You will be asked to provide information including specific days of attendance, parking, and meal requests, and you will then be directed to a secure web site to provide payment information (coming soon!). Everyone who wants to attend MUST register to ensure that the proper accommodations are in place.
Please note: The registration fee for this year's Galaxy Workshop will be $100. This fee, along with UC-HiPACC's financial support, will cover the costs of the welcome banquet as well as lunch, morning and afternoon refreshments for five days. The Galaxy Workshop banquet will be Monday night August 11.
3rd AGORA Workshop
AGORA is an international collaboration to run and compare high-resolution hydrodynamic zoom-in galaxy simulations. Visit the AGORA Project website: http://www.agorasimulations.org/
This summer, the final day of the Santa Cruz Galaxy Workshop will also be the first day of the Assembling Galaxies of Resolved Anatomy (AGORA) Workshop (https://sites.google.com/site/santacruzcomparisonproject/workshops/3rd-workshop), which will run from August 15–18. On August 15, the AGORA workshop will meet in the Simularium, Engineering 2 Building in the School of Engineering. Map. (Similar map but with directions from Core West Parking Garage to the Simularium.) Susequent days will meet in ISB 102 (Interdisciplinary Sciences Building). Map.
