About the 2012 CUPC

The Canadian Undergraduate Physics Conference (CUPC) is an annual research conference organized by undergraduates for the promotion and sharing of undergraduate Physics research. Approximately 200 Physics undergraduates gather at the CUPC to present the research that they have done and to socialize and trade insights about Physics. The CUPC also features lab tours, keynote speakers and social events to facilitate the barter of thought between different levels of the Physics community.

The 2012 CUPC will be organized by UBC for the first time in 15 years, and will be held in downtown Vancouver, and at the UBC Vancouver campus from October 25 to October 29.

The host hotel is the Hyatt Regency Vancouver, located in the heart of downtown within walking distance to various attractions. In line with the academic spirit of the conference, the 2012 CUPC will spend Saturday, October 27, at the UBC campus in Point Grey, approximately 20 minutes from the Hyatt.

As per tradition, a pub/dessert crawl is being planned, as are many of the mainstay events from previous CUPC's. There will also be some very exciting additions to the conference, which will be revealed in time...
