There is no formal application or registration process for non-undergraduate students and interested faculty/mentors, but we welcome  everybody to participate in CUWiP activities (please note, that we won’t be able to provide travel support or free lodging). Please fill in the guest form if you are planning to come to CUWiP and/or help with the conference activities, or contact us at cuwip2019@physics.wm.edu .

We also invite representatives from physics-related graduate programs and companies, employing physics majors, to participate in a career/grad school  fair, that will take place on Saturday, January 19 at the Jefferson Lab, Newport News. Register here before December 31 .

The APS Conferences for Undergraduate Women in Physics (CUWiP) are three-day regional conferences for undergraduate physics and astrophysics majors. The 2019 conferences will be held January 18-20.

The primary goal of the CUWiP conference 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.

The 2019 program at the College of William and Mary will include research talks, panel discussions about graduate school and careers in physics, workshops and discussions about women in physics, student research talks and poster session, and a visit to the Thomas Jefferson National Accelerator Facility (Jefferson Lab).

The CUWiP conferences are supported in part by the National Science Foundation (PHY-1346627) and by the Department of Energy Office of Science (DE-SC0011076). Further details are available on the APS conference website.

*We use an inclusive definition of “woman” and “female” and welcome trans women, genderqueer women, and non-binary people.
