APS Conference for Undergraduate Women in Physics (CUWiP) 2018 @ RIT
The APS Conferences for Undergraduate Women in Physics (CUWiP) are three day regional conferences for undergraduate physics majors. During January 12-14 2018, the Rochester Institute of Technology (RIT) School of Physics and Astronomy will be hosting CUWiP for students in Maine, Massachusetts (West of I-91), New Hampshire, New York (North of Poughkeepsie), Pennsylvania (Central Harrisonburg), and Vermont. RIT is located in the Eastern Standard Time zone (EST).
The goal of CUWiP is to help undergraduate women continue in physics by providing them with the 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.
Our program will include research talks by faculty, panel discussions about graduate school, careers in physics, and inclusivity, presentations and discussions about women in physics, laboratory tours, student research talks, a student poster session, various interactive workshops and discussions, and several meals during which presenters and students interact with each other.
