Undergraduate student affiliates pay a significantly discounted registration fee. As it is free for undergraduate students to join the CAP, we do offer a registration rate for non-member undergraduates. Sign up now if you plan to attend and are not already an affiliate!
There are significant savings for CAP members and delegates who register before midnight EST April 30th. Please see renewing/signing up for CAP membership for important information deadlines about ensuring your CAP membership is up-to-date before registering for Congress.
High school teachers wishing to participate in more Congress events than the High School Teachers Workshop are welcome to do so. The registration rates for high school teachers are the same for one-day registration or full conference registration.

Anyone who wants to attend the June 10th Soft Matter Canada 2018 session can register by using the CAP’s Congress registration system. The registration fee for this one-day session is $20 for students and $100 for delegates only attending SMC2018. Anyone registering for the full CAP Congress can register for Soft Matter Canada 2018 by selecting the SMC2018 option when completing their registration. There will be a break for lunch which will be available at the cafeteria (cost $10 plus tax).
This year the CAP is offering additional professional development opportunities during Congress for graduate students looking to stand out as they enter the job market. The training starts with a Physicists in the Workforce graduate student workshop on June 10th run by Mitacs. The registration fee is $35 and space may be limited. You must sign up when you fill out your registration for the CAP Congress. Additional lunch and learn sessions will be held on Tuesday (Non-Academic Physics Careers Seminar) and Wednesday (Physicists in Industry Panel). A fee of $15 may be applied to cover the cost of lunch.
Those delegates affiliated with an institution subscribed to Eduroam will be able to connect to Dalhousie’s Wi-Fi network immediately upon arrival. Delegates without an Eduroam account will be given a Wi-Fi username and password with their registration package. During registration, please indicate whether you use Eduroam or need an access code in the box provided.
A list of institutions subscribed to Eduroam can be found at https://www.canarie.ca/identity/institutions/ (for Canada), https://www.eduroam.us/ (for US), and https://www.eduroam.org/where/ (anywhere else).
NOTE: Your home institution is responsible for ensuring your e-mail is recognized by the system. Therefore you must make sure you can access Eduroam BEFORE you leave your home institution. Failure to do so may result in delays in getting you connected to the Wi-Fi network at Dalhousie.
The banquet is a chance to honour this year’s recipients who have demonstrated excellence in research, teaching and service in physics within Canada. To ensure a seat at the Wednesday, June 13th dinner where the medals will be presented to recipients, please purchase a ticket when you register for Congress. There is no guarantee last-minute tickets will be available to purchase during the conference as seating is limited.

The 2018 LOC have proposed three possible tours to be offered during Congress. During registration, you will be asked to indicate which tour(s) you are interested in if they happen to fall at a time that fits into your schedule. The organizers will be taking this information to determine how many times a particular tour should be available to try to accommodate the level of interest. The details about the proposed tours are available here.
Once the tour schedule has been established, anyone who has registered and indicated an interest in a tour will be invited to register for the available tours before the sign-up is posted to the website.
