Student Research Presentations
CUPC will be offering undergraduate students the opportunity to present their research in various fields of physics in either oral, poster, or creative presentation formats. More details will be available shortly! The conference will be a great opportunity to showcase your research and learn from others’ work too. As for research supervisors, with the conference being virtual, it provides a great opportunity to showcase the work of all your students.
This year, we are making an addition to oral and poster presentations: a creative presentation format. This will allow students to share artwork, personal stories, project models, demos, etc. If you are interested, feel free to propose a new format.
Already have an idea of what you’ll be presenting? Submit your abstract here before October 8th, 2021 at 11:59 pm (EST).
Science Communication Competition
With science communication becoming increasingly important, especially with current affairs being very science-focused, we would like to offer delegates an opportunity to showcase and practice their science communication skills. Using physics prompts provided by the CUPC team, delegates can create a short video (~5 minutes) explaining a complex concept or answering a complex question to a younger audience.
Undergraduate Mentorship Panel
This year, would like to introduce an Undergraduate Mentorship Panel. The panellists will include undergraduate physics students from across Canada who will provide advice to senior high school students who are interested in possibly applying to an undergraduate physics program. This also allows an opportunity for upper-year students to give advice to delegates in their first or second year of undergraduate study.
