History of CAM
CAM is a bi-annual conference exclusively planned by and for graduate students and sponsored by American Physical Society (APS), Mexican Physical Society (SMF) and Canadian Association of Physicists (CAP). The venue of this conference rotates among the three participating countries. The CAM conferences are a collaborative and cooperative effort of three physical societies in the North American, namely, APS, SMF and CAP, to cater to the needs of graduate student communities. Though the first CAM meeting was held in 1994, the CAM 2003 held in Mexico represented the first graduate student physics conference where students took an active role in organizing and planning. Since then the tradition has been continued and CAM is hosted on a rotation basis by Mexico, the United States and Canada.
Upcoming CAM Meeting
CAM 2013 will be hosted by CAP from August 15-18th, 2013 at the University of Waterloo. More information can be found at CAM 2013 website.
