Overview

Berkeley China Summit (or “BCS”) , founded in 2016, is an annual conference held at

UC Berkeley every fall, with the mission to highlight Berkeley‘s strengths and to encourage bilateral discussion and collaboration between the US and China. Over the past 4 years, we’ve invited over 100 high profile speakers, including Nobel Laureates, Turing Award Winners, business leaders, entrepreneurs, investors, and government officials.

Due to COVID-19, we will be holding this year‘s BCS in an online format. This gave us a great opportunity to involve speakers and audiences from broader geographic locations including China and all over the world, enabling even more bilateral discussions on business, technology, and culture.

Theme

The theme of BCS 2020 is Redefine & Reconnect: Technology Empowering the World.

Time

September 18, 2020 (Fri), 6-9 PM PDT

September 19, 2020 (Sat), 6-9 PM PDT

Live-streamed on multiple platforms accessible in the US and China.
