Welcome! Bienvenido!

Welcome to the 2022 Santa Cruz Galaxy Workshop homepage!

This year the workshop will be smaller than in recent pre-Covid years, including a limited number of participants, fewer and less formal talks, and more collaborative interactions. The workshop will be spread over three weeks, August 8-26. The more intense part will take place during August 15-19 and 22-24, consisting of a mix of talks and informal interaction.

The other portion, during August 8-12 and 24-26, will be less structured, with fewer talks and more informal interaction.

Program

Housing and Transportation

Housing

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.

Airport shuttles
Shuttle services from the airport to campus or to your lodging are available for a fee:


Public transport
Public transportation options to, from, and around Santa Cruz can be done through the Santa Cruz Metro.


Local Lodging Options

Although hotel policies vary, at the time you make your reservations you should ask if there is a discounted UCSC rate.


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:

  • Craigslist - Shows housing for rent in many areas


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.
