The conference will take place on the first floor of the Campus Center, University of Massachusetts at Amherst, located in the scenic Connecticut River Valley. Amherst is served by major airlines through Bradley International Airport in Windsor Locks, Connecticut (about 1 1/4 hours by car) and Logan Airport in Boston (about 2 1/2 hours by car). Rental car and bus service are available from both airports.
The Valley Transporter provides a shuttle service to and from both airports, Amtrak and bus stations to the University of Massachusetts. RESERVATIONS ARE REQUIRED for the Valley Transporter, call (800) 872-8752 or (413) 253-1350 for details. We are looking into arranging group transport from both airports.
