This year, WPS is excited to be involved in the planning for the Conferences for Undergraduate Women in Physics (CUWiP). CUWiP is a series of conferences sponsored by the American Physical Society. The conferences are held simultaniously nationwide, and aim to promote diversity and provide support to women in physics.
The western regional CUWiP conference (including California, Hawaii, Alaska, and Arizona) will be hosted at the UCLA Luskin Conference Center on January 13-15, 2017. Food and housing will be provided by the conference, and the only fee required is a 45$ registration fee. If you cannot afford the registration feel, fee waivers can be applied for through the APS website. CUWiP@UCLA plans to provide accomodations for those who may need it, including disability and childcare accomodations. Students from community colleges are also encouraged to attend!
Events include plenary talks, panels, professional skills workships, a student poster session, and a job fair. Optional lab tours and social events are also scheduled. If you are interested in attending the conference, please check out the official CUWiP@UCLA website below:
We hope to see you there!
