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’s conference will take place in person on March 23rd, 2023 from 9:30 am-5:30 pm. Events include student oral and poster presentations, a keynote talk, and industry/grad fair, a discussion panel, and physics trivia. We’re thrilled to have Italian physicist and author Carlo Rovelli as our keynote speaker, who is best known as a founder of the loop quantum gravity theory. All undergraduate students with an interest in physics are invited; we are excited to welcome delegates from across Ontario (and beyond)! Visit PhUnC2023.ca to learn more and register!
Canadian Conference for Undergraduate Women in Physics 2023
CCUWiP is a national conference gathering physics students and professionals from across the country. Delegates will be both virtually and physically participating in plenary lectures, workshops, panels, networking activities, student poster presentations, and more. This professional conference aims to create an environment where delegates can build networks, present research, and explore career paths, while also promoting diversity and discussing minorities in physics, mental health, and 2SLGBTQ+ issues. The conference is open to all undergraduate physics or engineering physics students who are members of equity-deserving groups.
CCUWiP is part of a three-day conference series held in conjunction with other regionally-run CUWiPs across the United States which are coordinated by the American Physical Society (APS). The 2023 conference will be offered in person at the University of Regina from January 20-22, 2023. For more information, please visit the CCUWiP website.
