APS Conference for Undergraduate Women in Physics Registration Open

Calling all women physics majors/enthusiasts!

Registration is now open for the 2016 Conference for Undergraduate Women in Physics, which will be held January 15-17, 2016 (the weekend before spring semester starts). APS covers your cost of attendance (hotel, some meals), though registration is ~$25 and it is likely we will need to apply for APS travel grants to cover our flights (which usually is not problematic).

The APS CUWiP goal 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. You don't have to be a physics major to register.

A typical program will include research talks by faculty, panel discussions about graduate school and careers in physics, presentations and discussions about women in physics, laboratory tours, student research talks, a student poster session, and several meals during which presenters and students interact with each other.
This year's location for Colorado-based students is Black Hills State University in South Dakota. Let's represent CU Denver and MSU Denver there this January!
Please email us at if you are interested in attending, or go to to get more information and apply. A short statement is necessary to be accepted to the conference, so be prepared to express why you'd like to go.
