Hello physicists and welcome to the Fall 2023 term! We hope that you all had a great summer, whether that was a study term, coop/research work, or some time off to rest before the new school year. 

With CUPC 2023 approaching in less than 7 weeks, the website will be updated every few days with all the information you need to make for a successful conference experience. 

Registration is now open until October 15, 2023. Please see previous announcements or the Registration and FAQ pages for more information. 

Due to the lack of submissions, the Student Presentation Abstract Submission deadline is being extended once more until September 25, which is a soft deadline which marks the day that the Committee will begin reviewing abstracts. We recommend meeting this soft deadline, but understand if there are extenuating circumstances preventing this. We will still accept submissions past this date, however we cannot guarantee that there will be time for all presentations. A list of presenter names will be published on October 2 and is subject to edits as more submissions are accepted.

The Committee has reserved a block of rooms at a discounted rate at the Delta Hotel in Uptown Waterloo, where the conference will be held. The last day to reserve a room is September 28, after which the reserved rooms will be released from holding. Please see our Attendee Information Page for more instructions on how to book a room.
