Undergraduate Women in Physics Conference

The University of Oxford is very pleased to host the Conference for Undergraduate Women in Physics in the UK, which will take place in March 2016. The application site is now open at http://www.physics.ox.ac.uk/confs/cuwip2016/ and closes on January 18, 2016.
The conference will start with a welcome reception on Thursday evening, March 17, 2016, and end Sunday afternoon, March, 20. It will bring together successful female physicists and 100 undergraduate women in physics to highlight career opportunities for women in physics and the contributions of women in physics. The meeting will provide ample opportunities for interacting with fellow physicists. The conference will include the following activities:

· Presentations by distinguished physicists on their cutting edge research and personal career paths;
· Panels offering guidance on the graduate school application process and featuring career opportunities outside academia;
· Workshops on effective assertiveness, how to take more control over challenging situations, careers confidence, and how to market oneself effectively;
· A tour of ISIS and the Central Laser Facility at RAL and several laboratories at the Department of Physics of the University of Oxford.

Lodging and meals at Lady Margaret Hall will be provided for participants who are accepted to the conference. Please send any questions regarding the CUWiP UK conference to cuwip@physics.ox.ac.uk.

This conference has been sponsored by the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC), Institute of Physics (IOP), Ogden Trust, Royal Astronomical Society (RAS), Science and Technology Facilities Council (STFC), Winton Capital, Lady Margaret Hall, and the Physics Department of the University of Oxford.
