About CUWiP

The American Physical Society (APS) Conference for Undergraduate Women in Physics (CUWiP) is a series of regional conferences held simultaneously around the United States for undergraduate women interested in physics. The goal of this conference series is to encourage undergraduate women to pursue a career in physics by giving them the experience of a professional conference. This includes networking with women in physics of all ages and professional levels, plenary talks by prominent women in physics, and panel discussions providing information about graduate school and career opportunities in physics. See the 2020 APS CUWiP Conference flyer.

Applications to the 2020 CUWiP at the University of Chicago are now closed.

These 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.
