Announcing 2023 Conference for Undergraduate Women in Physics at University of Washington

Posted by:
August 22, 2022

The University of Washington (UW) is very pleased to host the APS Conferences for Undergraduate Women in Physics on January 20-22, 2023. The application website will open on Monday, August 29, 2022, and will close promptly at 5PM ET on Monday, October 3, 2022.  (support for lodging and meals provided)

The keynote presentation will be given by Dr. Nadya Mason, Rosalyn Sussman Yalow Professor in Physics at University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign. Professor Mason’s research at Illinois focuses on how electrons behave in low-dimensional, correlated materials, where enhanced interactions are expected to give novel results. This research is relevant to a variety of technologies, including quantum communication, information storage, and qubit control in quantum computers.

CUWiP will bring together successful female physicists and over 2,000 undergraduate women in physics to highlight career opportunities for women in physics and the contributions of women in physics. The meeting will provide ample opportunities for interacting with fellow physicists. The conference will include the following activities:

  1. Presentations by professional physicists on their cutting edge research and personal career paths;
  2. Panels featuring career opportunities outside academia;
  3. Workshops or panels offering guidance on how to get involved in summer research, the graduate school application process, applying to transfer to a four-year college from a community college, and preparing for and applying for jobs in industry;
  4. An opportunity for undergraduate attendees to present their research;

Please see the attached 22002 CUWiP_Poster or for more information on the APS CUWiP at UW visit https://sites.google.com/view/uw-cuwip/. Websites for the other conference sites can also be found on the APS CUWiP webpage at www.aps.org/cuwip.

This conference series has been supported by the National Science Foundation, the Department of Energy, and is sponsored by the American Physical Society.
