Some details regarding transportation to and from the meeting location, the Marine Science Research Building (MSRB) on the UCSB campus:

If you plan to have a rental car, you'll need to pay for parking by purchasing a permit from a dispenser at the lot and putting it on your dashboard. Parking is $8 per day. You can park in any of the yellow lots shown on the map, but lot 16 is recommended, which is circled in red. It's then a 10 min walk to the MSRB.

If you don't plan to have a rental car, you can arrange to get a taxi from the hotel to the building. From Goleta the rate should be less than $10 for the cab. If you get a group together, you can obviously split the fair, but you may also be able to talk to hotel shuttle into taking you to campus. Coming into campus from Hwy 217 go left at the roundabout and the building is down a little bit on the right.

Otherwise there are 2 university vehicles that can be used to give rides, but Brian Emery ( will need to know in advance.

The icebreaker will be held on the 2nd floor balcony at the Marine Science Research Building at 6 pm on Monday the 25th. Since this will begin after 5 pm, the parking rate is cheaper and visitors can park in any of the green lots.
