Conference for Undergraduate Women in Physics (CUWiP) 2016

In January 15-17, Georgia Tech hosted the 11th annual NSF funded Conference for Undergraduate Women in Physics (CUWiP). Georgia Tech broke the record as the site to host the most attendees up to date with 190 participants. Along with Georgia Tech there are 8 sites in the US which are part of the CUWiP: Black Hills State University,Old Dominion University/Jefferson Lab., Ohio State University, Oregon State University, Syracuse Uiversity, University of California-San Diego, University of Texas-San Antonio, and Wesleyan University. 

The APS CUWiP goal 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 conference brought speakers who work in all fields of physics from soft matter to optics to astrophysics. As a part of the conference, the CRA members gave 3 Astrophysics workshops which was the most attended workshop with ~100 participants. You can find the slides here: Astrophysics Workshop
