Volunteering: Interested in volunteering in exchange for reduced registration fees? Fill out the form (link is included in the registration process) and we will get back to you! Please note that this option is only available for those who purchase a two-day ticket.
Why is attendance not free?Beyond Academia is a non-profit organization run by UC Berkeley PhD students & postdocs. Unlike the other small events we plan through the year, the 2-day conference requires a significant part of our budget (venue, catering for breakfast/lunch/reception, workshop leader fees, out-of-town speaker accommodations). We offer a significantly subsidized ticket price. Please indicate during registration if the ticket cost causes you a significant financial hardship, and we'll get in touch with you.

I am a recruiter – can I attend the conference to recruit for my company?Due to space limitations and logistical concerns, we cannot accommodate you at the conference.
I am a recent PhD graduate or recently finished my postdoc – can I attend the conference?We prioritize current students and postdocs, but offer a limited number of tickets available for recent graduates.
