Department Newsletter - Significant Bits

For the past few years, the Department newsletter, Significant Bits, has been published as a vehicle to keep alumni, industry, academia, government and UMass employees abreast of the research and teaching activities of the Department of Computer Science. We hope that the newsletter is both informative and enjoyable reading. Prior to Spring 1999, the newsletter was known as Loose Change.
