Physics Undergraduate Conference at Western

Every year Western hosts a Physics Undergraduate Conference (otherwise known as PhUnC) that gives undergraduates the opportunity to get together and share their research through short talks and poster sessions. This year, we are eagerly expanding the conference to include nearby universities in Southwestern Ontario and across the border. 

The conference will take place all day from 10:30-5:30 on Thursday, March 9th, 2017 in the Physics and Astronomy Building at the University of Western Ontario in London, Ontario.  Our keynote speaker will be the director of SNOLAB, Dr. Nigel Smith, talking about SNOLAB’s Nobel-prize winning neutrino searches. A catered social event will follow.

The Physics Undergraduate Research Award of Distinction, awarded as the top prize for best research and presentation (oral or poster), is a 12 week paid research position at Western University in the summer of 2017. The award is valued at $3000 plus any additional money from your supervisor.

Individuals who are interested in presenting research can fill out the registration form:

The Deadline for registration is February 27. We hope to see you there!
