We are excited to host the 2014 South Central Conference for Undergraduate Women in Physics here at LSU. The conference will explore and showcase career opportunities for physicists through lots of activities, such as tours of national labs, research presentations, discussion panels, and lots of opportunities for networking. Discussion panels will include topics such as applying for and succeeding in graduate school, how to get involved in undergraduate research or summer programs, and the multitude of careers available to physicists.

The South Central CUWiP will be one of eight regional conferences all taking place simultaneously and organized through the American Physical Society.   The aim of the CUWiPs is to allow undergraduate women physicists to meet, network with, and be inspired by both peers and established women scientists. Past participants have described attending a CUWiP as an empowering experience - see testimonials here.

Food and accomodation will be provided for participants who are accepted to the conference. There is a $25.00 fee associated with registration for the conference (application is free).  For instructions on the application process, see Apply or check the link at the bottom of the page. Travel to the conference has traditionally been supported by the students' own departments, although we do hope to offer a limited number of travel stipends.

Explore out site for more information about the conference, including information about the schedule, the speakers and panelists, and a number of the research presentations.  You can also join us on Facebook.

Thank you to everyone who participated in the 2014 South Central Conference for Undergraduate Women in Physics!
