The American Physical Society has chosen Stony Brook University and Brookhaven National Laboratory (BNL) to host the 2014 Northeastern Conference for Undergraduate Women in Physics (CUWIP). CUWIP is a national series of conferences held across the United States each year. The goal of the conference, according to the American Physical Society, “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.”
This year’s conference for the Northeastern United States was held at Cornell University. More than 900 students participated nationwide in 2013. About 200 participants are expected for the 2014 Northeastern Conference.
The program includes research talks by faculty, panel discussions about graduate school and careers in physics, presentations and discussions about women in physics, tours at BNL, student research talks, a student poster session and several meals during which presenters and students interact with one another.
The conference will be held Thursday, January 16,through Sunday, January 19, 2014, at Stony Brook and will include a full day at BNL. The conference headquarters will be the new Hilton Garden Inn on the Stony Brook University campus.
