The Canadian Undergraduate Physics Conference (CUPC) is an undergraduate research conference in which students from all over Canada engage and share knowledge regarding physics and astronomy. CUPC provides delegates with the opportunity to network with peers and industry professionals, learn about the exciting research of experts, and find opportunities in the field of physics. We invite all undergraduate students and first-year Master’s students to share their work and meet peers from the entire Canadian physics and astronomy community.

The CUPC 2023 team is monitoring the status and situation of the COVID-19 pandemic, and is dedicated to providing a safe, clean, and accessible environment that’s still educational, engaging, and fun. With that in mind, we are currently planning for CUPC 2023 to be held in person, with a full schedule of lectures and activities. Please watch our socials for further updates, should anything change!

The 59th Annual Canadian Undergraduate Physics Conference will be hosted by the University of Waterloo from October 26th to 29th, 2023.  The CUPC 2023 organizing team is proud to show off our lovely campus located in Waterloo, Ontario. Tours at Perimeter Institute are also being planned.

The CUPC organizing team recognizes and acknowledges that their university is situated in Waterloo, historically known as the Dish with One Spoon territory.

The Dish with One Spoon is an agreement between Hodinöhsö:ni’ Anishinaabeg, and their allied nations to live peaceably on the lands throughout what is now known as the Great Lakes Region. The circle at the centre is a dish with a beaver’s tail, indicating that they will have one dish and what belongs to one will be shared among all. We are to eat of the beavertail, using no sharp utensils, to prevent the shedding of blood. We all share resources and everything the Creator has provided for us upon our arrival to Mother Earth.”
