Canadian Conference for Undergraduate Women in Physics (CCUWiP)
January 20, 2019 @ 7:30 am - 3:30 pm
Conferences for Undergraduate Women in Physics (CUWiP) are three-day regional conferences for undergraduate physics majors. The goal of CUWiP is to help undergraduate women continue in physics by providing them with an opportunity to experience a professional conference, information about graduate school and professions in physics, and access to other women in physics of all ages with whom they can share experiences, advice, and ideas.
Delegates will be participating in plenary lectures, workshops, panels, networking activities, student talks, student poster sessions, and lab tours.
The objective of the CCUWiP is to expose undergraduate students from Canadian universities to various professions that are associated with a physics degree, both in industry and academia. Students will also be guided through ways to apply to graduate school and enter the work field while gaining access to a network of women in physics.
The conference aims to create an environment where delegates can build networks, present research, and explore career paths, while also promoting diversity and discussing women in physics, mental health, and LGBTQ+ issues.
CCUWiP is held in conjunction with other regionally-run CUWiPs across the United States which are coordinated by the American Physical Society (APS). In 2019, the conference will be held from January 18-20th at the University of Ottawa.
