The American Physical Society (APS) Conference for Undergraduate Women in Physics (CUWiP) is a series of regional conferences held simultaneously around the United States for undergraduate women interested in physics. The goal of this conference series is to encourage undergraduate women to pursue a career in physics by giving them the experience of a professional conference. This includes networking with women in physics of all ages and professional levels, plenary talks by prominent women in physics, and panel discussions providing information about graduate school and career opportunities in physics.
