General description

To complement the conference program, we are organizing a few excursions so you can experience for yourself what life — and work — is like in the San Francisco Bay Area.

Please check back occasionally, as we will be adding a few more tours. We will also soon offer a list with ideas for how you can explore the City on your own.

A visit to SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory and to Stanford University


Saturday, May 18, 2019
9:00 am 5:00 pm

Without a doubt, Stanford University is one of the world’s greatest research universities. Many of its graduates (or drop-outs…) contributed to the growth of Silicon Valley as founders and employees of such companies as Apple, Intel, Google, Hewlett-Packard, and Yahoo!

On this day trip, we'll visit the SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory — which operated the very first non-European website, and the fifth one overall, in the world! —, the Stanford University campus, and enjoy a scenic drive from San Francisco to the university, and back.

The San Francisco Bay to Breakers Run


Sunday, May 19, 2019

This annual 12 km (~7.5 miles) run across the City of San Francisco is one of the world’s oldest public foot races and has certainly become known as one of the wackiest and most notorious. Few events capture the spirit of San Francisco and its diversity better than Bay to Breakers.

The event appeals to both serious runners as well as those interested in an extended enjoyable walk past many of the well-known landmarks of San Francisco.

The starting line for the race and the venues for some of its associated events, are very close to the Hyatt Regency conference hotel.

To participate in this event, please register directly on the official Bay to Breakers website.
