The second “Women in Physics Canada” conference will be held at the University of British Columbia
Date: August 1-4, 2012
Early Bird (reduced fee) registration deadline: June 29, 2012 (Increased registration fees will be in effect afterwards)
“The conference is aimed at young women in all areas of physics (including Engineering Physics and Astronomy) primarily undergraduate and graduate students, as well as early career physicists and postdocs.
The conference features invited plenary speakers and panelists, contributed talks and posters, a visit and tour of the TRIUMF laboratory, an opening BBQ, and a banquet dinner at the scenic Sage Bistro. We have secured a group of truly amazing women as invited panelists and speakers
Thanks to our generous sponsors (including WWEST), registration is only $30 for students, and a limited number of Travel Awards are available.
The goals of the conference include building a strong community of women physicists, sharing research results and ideas, raising awareness of careers in science and technology, and working towards increasing the participation of women in physics in Canada.”
