Welcome from
the organizing committee

We are thrilled to have you join us in what we hope will be a dynamic, collaborative 3-day experience with you. This page contains the following pertinent information for you to know before we begin our journey:

Daily signing-in is required and will be open between 8:30 - 8:55 AM. Please visit the registration tables located outside of the main entrance upon arrival. Be sure to arrive no later than 8:45 AM as the program begins promptly at 9:00 AM when the Megadome doors close to the plenary.


Light complimentary breakfast & coffee will be provided daily.

We are not providing lunch this year for Institute participants. We encourage you to bring a brown bag lunch and a refillable water bottle because Chabot's Cafe is not equipped to handle large crowds and creates long lines; we strongly encourage you to bring your lunch with you daily.

Dress in layers to accommodate to the ever-changing Bay Area weather. Wear comfortable clothing and shoes that you can move around in with ease.

Social Media
Out institute hashtag is #inventingourfuture. Be sure to follow us on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram. Share your experience!

Onsite Assistance
Staff and volunteers will have a “green” colored name badge and are available to provide onsite assistance at any time during the Institute. There will be an information table located in the Rotunda after morning registration; we are available to listen to your feedback, concerns and/or compliments!
