The APS CUWiP is a series of regional conferences held simultaneously around the United States and Canada for undergraduate women interested in physics. The 2019 conferences will be held January 18- 20.
The primary goal of this conference series is to encourage undergraduate women to pursue a career in physics by giving them the experience of a professional conference. This includes networking with women in physics of all ages and professional levels, plenary talks by prominent women in physics, and panel discussions providing information about graduate school and career opportunities in physics.
The University of Alabama CUWiP hosted by the Department of Physics and Astronomy will feature presentations by female physicists and educators in academia, national labs and industry, a lively career panel, laboratory tours, a student poster session, and opportunities to network with accomplished women in the field.
If you are:
Interested in meeting other women in physics?
Looking for new experiences, advice, and ideas?
Excited to learn about graduate school and professions in physics?
Then join us for APS CUWiP January 18-20, 2019!

Code of Conduct for APS Meetings
It is the policy of the American Physical Society (APS) that all participants, including atendees, vendors, APS staff, volunteers, and all other stakeholders at APS meetings will conduct themselves in a professional manner that is welcoming to all participants and free from any form of discrimination, harassment, or retaliation. Participants will treat each other with respect and consideration to create a collegial, inclusive, and professional environment at APS Meetings. Creating a supportive environment to enable scientific discourse at APS meetings is the responsibility of all participants.
Participants will avoid any inappropriate actions or statements based on individual characteristics such as age, race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, gender identity, gender expression, marital status, nationality, political affiliation, ability status, educational background, or any other characteristic protected by law. Disruptive or harassing behavior of any kind will not be tolerated. Harassment includes but is not limited to inappropriate or intimidating behavior and language, unwelcome jokes or comments, unwanted touching or attention, offensive images, photography without permission, and stalking.
Violations of this code of conduct policy should be reported to meeting organizers, APS staff, or the APS Director of Meetings. Sanctions may range from verbal warning, to ejection from the meeting without refund, to notifying appropriate authorities. Retaliation for complaints of inappropriate conduct will not be tolerated. If a participant observes inappropriate comments or actions and personal intervention seems appropriate and safe, they should be considerate of all parties before intervening.
These conferences are supported in part by the National Science Foundation (PHY-1346627) and by the Department of Energy Office of Science (DE-SC0011076). Further details are available on the APS conference website.
