Canadian Conference for Undergraduate Women in Physics (CCUWIP) at Queen's University 2018

Posted On: March 29, 2018

The fifth annual Canadian Conference for Undergraduate Women in Physics (CCUWIP) was hosted by Queen's University in January of this year. The three-day conference brought together 110 students from across Canada, from universities such as the University of British Columbia, University of Saskatchewan, McMaster University, and Dalhousie University, to name a few. Eleven other CUWIP conferences were simultaneously held in the US the same weekend.

At CCUWIP, students gathered to experience a professional conference about physics, gender-related issues in the field, and to learn about post-graduation opportunities. Students attended lectures by top physicists in the field, participated in interactive workshops, and presented their research to their peers and panels of judges.

This year, CCUWIP developed an new official partnership with the Canadian Association of Physicists (CAP) through the organizing committee at Queen's.

Here are some highlights in pictures from the conference.
