Stein Symposium

Friday, August 21, 2015

The Stein Symposium will be a full day of talks and fellowship. It will be an occasion to reconnect with alumni and colleagues, and reminisce about earlier times at UMass Amherst. It will also provide an opportunity to see how the campus has developed, and to learn about the current research and future directions of some of Professor Stein's former students, postdocs and collaborators.
