CUWiP 2017, Oxford, UK

The Oxford Women in Physics Society is excited to host the third Conference for Undergraduate Women in Physics (CUWiP) UK in the Department of Physics at Oxford University after the huge success of the events in 2015 and 2016.

The goal is to help undergraduates who identify as 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.


"Coming away from this conference I feel infinitely more confident in my ability as a woman in science… Hopefully in a few years, I may be able to come back and share my story in order to make other girls feel as inspired and enthused as I do now."
