Application and registration for the 2016 CUWiP occurs in two steps.
Step 1: Apply through the APS
The application opens on September 1, 2015 on the APS CUWiP website and closes on October 16, 2015 at midnight EST.
|Monday, November 9||Inform applicants|
|Friday, November 20||Deadline to accept|
|Wednesday, November 25||Inform wait-list|
|Friday, December 4||Deadline for coming off wait-list|
|Friday, January 1||Deadline to withdraw|
When you send in your application, it will be evaluated by the local organizing committee of the conference to which you applied (i.e. the conference that is closest to your anticipated location, January 15, 2016)
Step 2: Register for the Conference
After you have been accepted to the conference, you must register through the APS. At that time a $25 fee will be required for registration, and you will be asked if you are interested in presenting a research poster. Presenting a poster is not a requirement for attending the conference, but we do encourage all students who have been involved in research to bring a poster.
Note: this is a conference for undergraduate students. Strong preference will be given to physics majors (if you haven’t declared your major but are seriously considering physics you may still apply).
