We will also collect additional questions for her in the conference before/during her address.

The ConfAPS Logoerences for Undergraduate Women in Physics (CUWiP) are coordinated by the American Physical Society (APS) and hosted regionally by colleges and universities across the United States. The Ohio State University is proud to be hosting a CUWiP from Jan 15-17, 2016! The goal of this conference is to encourage undergraduate women to identify as physicists. We hope to achieve this goal through networking events, workshops, and speaker presentations.

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.
