Canadian-American-Mexican (CAM) Graduate Student Physics Conference

The CAM Conference is a joint meeting of the Canadian, American and Mexican Physical Societies which is held every second year, cycling between locations in Mexico, the United States, and Canada, with Canada hosting the CAM conference every sixth year (click here for a history of locations/attendance).  

The conference focuses on the research done by graduate students. Plenary contributions from established scientists will also give the student participants exposure to ongoing research in diverse sub-fields. Students share the results of their research with senior scientists and international peers in their own field, as well as with those focused on other disciplines within physics. The aim of the CAM Conference is to provide an outstanding opportunity for students to develop professional skills, learn a broad range of physics topics, and initiate interactions across geographical borders. Furthermore, it will foster communication and exchange of ideas among students of various backgrounds and interests.

CAM 2017

The 2017 CAM conference will be held from August 17-19 in Washington, DC, USA. The APS is responsible for organizing this conference. The CAP's representative on the organizing committee is the CAP's Councillor representing graduate student members, Christopher Pugh from the University of Waterloo (cpugh [at] uwaterloo [dot] ca).
