BHSU Hosting Women Physicists Conference

Black Hills State University in Spearfish is the regional site for a three-day conference for undergraduate women students in physics, according to a news release from BHSU and the American Physical Society's Conference for Undergraduate Women in Physics

Conferences are held simultaneously across nine sites nationwide, and BHSU is host to students from nine states -- Montana, North Dakota, South Dakota, Wyoming, Nebraska, Colorado, Minnesota, Iowa and Wisconsin. BHSU is hosting the conference in cooperation with the Sanford Underground Research Facility in Lead. 

Event organizers said 80 students were planning to attend. The conference includes research talks by faculty, panel discussions about graduate school and careers in physics, presentations and discussions about women in physics, laboratory tours, and a student poster session.

The APS CUWiP goal is to help undergraduate women continue in physics by providing them with the opportunity to experience a professional conference, information about graduate school and professions in physics, and access to other women in physics of all ages with whom they can share experiences, advice, and ideas.
