APS Conferences for Undergraduate Women in Physics (CUWiP) are three-day regional conferences for undergraduate physics majors held simultaneously around the US and Canada. Our goal is to empower undergraduate women and gender minorities in their pursuits and aspirations in the field of physics by providing them with an opportunity to connect with peers and leaders, learn strategies for success, and be inspired by experts.

APS CUWiP in Pittsburgh starts in








Be prepared for a warm, wet January weekend in Pittsburgh, with temperatures from 20-45 F (266-280 K) and a mix of rain and snow on Saturday.

CUWiP has become incredibly popular.  In order to maximize the number of CUWiP participants we can accommodate, we will allocate participants to sites based on travel logistics and site capacity. We will aim to follow the distributions outlined below, but may have to make adjustments. Please do not purchase travel or plan to be at a specific site until you receive an email confirming you have been accepted to a specific CUWiP site.
