Hosted by the University of North Florida Department of Physics
The 2018 APS Conferences for Undergraduate Women in Physics (CUWiP) are a set of regional conferences to be held January 12-14 at ten different locations around the US with the aim of encouraging young women to continue in physics. University of North Florida Department of Physics will host the 2018 regional CUWiP covering the Southeast.
Undergraduate physics majors are invited to attend to experience a professional conference that will feature talks by prominent female physicists, student research presentations, and workshops on topics including graduate school, careers in physics, and women in STEM. Students in attendance will have the opportunity to network with over 200 fellow undergraduate physicists as well as many leaders in academia and industry in an environment where all can share their experiences, advice, and ideas.
This conference is held for a $45 registration fee to offset the cost of food and lodging which are provided by the host site. Travel expenses are typically covered by the attendee’s home institution. Limited travel grants are available to participants whose department is unable to provide full travel support. The Local Organizing Committee will contact you directly regarding requests for travel grants.
We hope that you will join us for this year’s conference to showcase your own research, explore career opportunities, and connect with other women in the physics community!
