The American Physical Society (APS) Conference for Undergraduate Women in Physics (CUWiP) is a group of three-day regional conferences held simultaneously throughout the United States and Canada for undergraduate women interested in physics.
The University of California, Los Angeles is pleased to host the 2017 Western Regional CUWiP, representing California, Arizona, Alaska, and Hawaii. The conference will be held from January 13-15, 2017 at the new UCLA Luskin Conference Center.
The APS CUWiP goal is to host a professional conference for undergraduate women in physics that provides information about graduate school and careers available with an undergraduate degree in physics. CUWiP offers a unique networking opportunity for women in physics to share experiences, advice, and ideas.
The mission statement for CUWiP@UCLA is "Our Differences are Valuable." Our conference will feature plenary talks by exceptional women from a wide range of career and personal backgrounds, interactive workshop sessions exploring topics from professional skills to mental health, a student poster session, and a job fair.
The CUWiP conferences are held at no cost to the undergraduate students, except for a $45 registration fee. The conference will cover the cost of lodging and meals. Students whose home institutions do not cover the cost of travel should see our Travel Support page for details.
CUWiP conferences will also take place at the following locations:
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. Additional CUWiP@UCLA sponsors include:
