 +====Sierra Conference====
 +The Sierra Conference has a rich and storied history dating back to 1968. It began as a somewhat legitimate conference for California astro grads by California astro grads, featuring invited speakers, poster sessions, three course dinners, and live bears. Over the years it became more of a casual camping trip designed to "​encourage collaboration and networking within the astronomy community in California."​ As cliched as the wording is, it definitely strikes a chord: building a network and community of other left coast astronomers by enjoying the fun and beauty surrounding us. Unfortunately the event became only lightly attended and was abandoned in ~2015.
 +
 +Thankfully it was revived in the past year thanks to a grant from UCSC and a multi-campus team of organizers. The Sierra Conference has been restructured to serve specifically the UC astronomy graduate student community, featuring a more balanced mix of recreational and scientific activities. In addition, discussions on grad student life, department climate, and the UC astronomy community are held. Notes from the past conference can be found **here** (this will be a link eventually). The past conference had 12 attendees from 7 UC's but is looking to expand to ~30 attendees from all 8 UC's with astronomy departments. It is generally held near the end of the Summer just before the start of classes so that first years might attend as well. The Sierra Conference will most likely continue to take place in Sequoia National Park as it is conveniently located for both northern and southern UC's.
 +
 +At minimum, the UCB Sierra Conference coordinator will serve as the point person for the Sierra Conference at Berkeley. This entails advertising the event and planning the logistics of attending (i.e. arranging transportation,​ camping equipment, and food for the Berkeley contingent). However, it is preferred that UCB Sierra Conference coordinator also participate in the planning of the event which is done in collaboration with organizers at the other UC campuses (via Slack). This can include raising funds, scheduling and booking a campsite, designing an abstract booklet, leading discussions,​ and contributing to the longevity and long-term goals of the Sierra Conference. ​
 +
 +A separate, updated Sierra Conference wiki/​webpage in the works but here are some links to **old** Sierra Conference info.
 +Here is [[sierra_conf|the quick and easy guide to an awesome Sierra Conference]].
 +Also there now exists the [[sierra_conference|Sierra Conference central page]], with info on current/​past/​planning stuff for sierra conferences. There is a link for this page off of the start page of the badgrads wiki.

-====Sierra Conference==== 
-Every year, UCB Astronomy hosts a camping trip designed to "​encourage collaboration and networking within the astronomy community in California." ​ As cliched as the wording is, it definitely strikes a chord: building a network and community of other left coast astronomers by enjoying the fun and beauty surrounding us. 
- 
-Many many years ago, this job involved soliciting topics of interest from the astronomical community at large, wrangling speakers from the various California universities and arranging their travel, room, and board, designing the speaking schedule, organizing publicity, reserving rooms, providing for projectors, transportation,​ name tags, and inter-talk food, and taking care of any other little things that might come up when organizing a conference. ​ In its current iteration, it is organizing a camping trip and inviting people from California schools for a more informal bonding experience. 
- 
-Sierra Conference is a job that takes little effort for most of the year, then intense effort leading up to the event. ​ Traditionally held in the summer, the Sierra Conference has found a semi-permanent placing just before the start of classes, so that first years might enjoy the event. ​ This event works best if placed in a convenient geographic location for both northern and southern California schools, and has better success recruiting other schools to join if it is.
