APS Conference for Undergraduate Women in Physics (CUWiP)

Jan 19, 2024 - Jan 21, 2024 at -

We are excited that the American Physical Society (APS) has selected the University of Pennsylvania as one of the host sites for this CUWiP conference, which will take place on January 19 – 21, 2024.

The primary goal of this three-day conference is to help undergraduate women thrive in physics. We aim to provide the opportunity to experience a professional conference, gather information about graduate school and professions in physics, and network with a diverse set of physicists of all ages, race and gender, with whom you can share experiences, advice and ideas.

The CUWiP program includes research talks, panel discussions about graduate school and careers in physics, workshops and discussions, student research talks and poster sessions, and laboratory tours.  Meals, coffee breaks, a gala dinner, and conference housing are additional opportunities for new friendships, and to strengthen your identity as a physics person. 

The keynote presentation will be given by Dr. Jocelyn Bell Burnell, Professor of Astrophysics at the University of Oxford. She was responsible for the discovery of pulsars while a radio astronomy graduate student in Cambridge and has subsequently worked in gamma ray, X-ray, infrared and millimetre wavelength astronomy.

Please apply now! We welcome applications from people across the entire gender spectrum, and the spectrum of interests in science including physics and related disciplines. https://web.sas.upenn.edu/cuwip-2024/
