CUWiP Sites

As CUWiP is so popular, we need to carefully balance the loads across the sites to minimize travel costs and maximize the number of students who can attend CUWiP. We will aim to follow the distribution described by the APS CUWiP map, but we may need to deviate from that, so please do not book travel until you receive an acceptance email from, and complete registration for, a specific site.
