CCC 2004: Photos of UMass and of Amherst

UMass from Hadley

The UMass campus seen from the west at sunset.

UMass from Hadley again

Another view of the campus. The Computer Science and Polymer science buildings are in the cluster in the center, just left of the larger white Lederle Graduate Research Center.

Cmpsci building

The Computer Science building. For enough money, we'll name it after you...

Conte building

Front view of the Conte Polymer Science building, site for the conference lectures. Republican Congressman Silvio Conte (1921-1991) was a great supporter of UMass, and in general was so popular that he sometimes won both the Republican and Democratic nominations for re-election.

Conte lecture hall

The lecture hall in the Conte Polymer Science Building, with some unidentified polymer scientists.

Campus Center hotel

The Campus Center Hotel, principal lodging site and location for lunches.

The Old Chapel and the W.E.B. DuBois library seen from the base of the Campus Center. DuBois, a native of western Massachusetts, was among the leading African-American intellectuals of the twentieth century.

Robert and Emily

Metal sculptures of Amherst residents Robert Frost and Emily Dickinson, near Emily's house in downtown Amherst. Emily is buried in West Cemetary.

Taste of Amherst

The 2003 Taste of Amherst festival on the Town Common. The 2004 festival should be sometime around the conference, perhaps even overlapping.

Taste again

Another view of the 2003 Taste of Amherst.

Range from Memorial Hill

The Holyoke Range, seen from the War Memorial on the campus of Amherst College. The Holyoke Range rises a maximum of about 1000 feet (300m) above the Connecticut Valley and offers spectactular views.

Seven Sisters

The western portion of the Holyoke Range, known as the "Seven Sisters". We may have an organized hike along this ridge during the conference.
