Canadian Undergraduate Physics Conference

The Canadian Undergraduate Physics Conference (CUPC) is an annual event organized by and for Canadian physics students.  It is hosted by a different university each year, usually held over an extended weekend in October (4 days).  Physics students from across Canada meet at CUPC to present oral or poster contributions on various topics related to physics, to attend special invited lectures, to tour local research facilities, to meet with representatives from participating institutions that offer graduate degrees in physics, and to meet with a representative of the CAP Executive to learn more about the association and its support of physics in Canada.

The CAP, via its CAP Foundation,  provides a cash donation to be distributed, as required, to students who need financial assistance to attend the conference.

The 2014 CUPC was held at Queen's University from 2014 October 23-26.  Visit the 2014 Canadian Undergraduate Physics Conference Website for more information.  The 2015 CUPC will be hosted by Trent University from October 22-26.
