CUWiP 2016, Oxford, UK

The Oxford Women in Physics Society is excited to host the second Conference for Undergraduate Women in Physics (CUWiP) UK in the Department of Physics at Oxford University after the huge success of last year’s event.

The goal is to help undergraduate women continue in physics through participation in a conference focused on their development as scientists and showcasing options for their educational and professional futures.

The conference will enable attendees to meet, network with, and be inspired by successful women in physics with whom they can share experiences, advice and ideas.


"These three days are going to become the seed of something much bigger for me, because not only am I going to work harder in my own right, but I am determined to give something back to those who are coming along next."
