The University of Oxford is very pleased to host CUWiP UK, the first Undergraduate Women in Physics Conference in the UK. The conference will start with a welcome reception Thursday evening, March 19, 2015, and end Sunday afternoon, March 22. 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, Diamond, and the Central Laser Facility at RAL and several laboratories at the Department of Physics of the University of Oxford.
