I have also been told that Google does not have enough space; nearby, there
is the Computer History Museum, but that holds also only up to 400 people...

Yeah, that pretty much sums it up. I'd say
1000 is a high number, 800
attendees would be much more likely. We've typically had 4-6
concurrent tracks at past conferences. And then -- and this is the
toughest part -- having a "community space" where people can hang out
during the conf with laptops, after-hours, etc., is great. This has
been a big room with couches, the last few conferences.
At Berkeley, other than the keynotes issue (and it looks like Wheeler
or Zellerbach would work for that) it looks like the Clark Kerr campus
would fit the bill nicely:
This has a wide variety of rooms, plus:
"Accommodations in suites and residence hall rooms are available for
approximately 700 guests."
NO idea about costs, though.
Y'all are getting into this!
It is worth noting that the Clark Kerr campus is a separate location
about a half of a mile from the main campus. Most people at Berkeley
never have anything to do with Clark Kerr facility and hence don't
really know what is there.
Because it is a bit of a walk between the two, it would probably be
best to have events primarily at either Clark Kerr or at the main
campus. But doing a lot at both sites would be very awkward.
