APS Conferences for Undergraduate Women in Physics (CUWiP) are three-day regional conferences for undergraduate physics majors. Beginning in 2024, these events will be renamed the Conferences for Undergraduate Women and Gender Minorities in Physics as part of APS's Gender Inclusive Physics Community. We look forward to welcoming attendees with keynote speakers, undergraduate networking, graduate school advice, and career-focused sessions, as well as with mentoring from our participants in the Conference for Graduate Women and Gender Minorities in Physics.
COVID-19 and Related Health and Safety Guidelines to Attend APS Sponsored Meetings.
The goal of APS CUWiP is to help undergraduate women continue in physics by providing them with the opportunity to experience a professional conference, information about graduate school and professions in physics, and access to other women in physics of all ages with whom they can share experiences, advice, and ideas. The national and local organizing committees of APS CUWiP strive to create a welcoming environment for all, including undergraduate women and gender minorities.

A typical program will include research talks by faculty, panel discussions about graduate school and careers in physics, presentations and discussions about women in physics, laboratory tours, student research talks, a student poster session, and several meals during which presenters and students interact with each other.
The next CUWiP events will be held Jan. 19 to 21, 2024.
