Our fifth annual Women in Physics Canada (WIPC) conference was held from July 27-29, 2016 at the University of Saskatchewan. WIPC is a national conference aimed primarily at (but not restricted to) graduate students in physics, astrophysics, mathematical physics and related fields.
WIPC is first and foremost a scientific conference, in which early career scientists have the opportunity to present their work and to hear plenary talks from leaders in the field. Its intent is also to provide support to early career women, encouraging them to continue in a career in science. The conference provides participants with the opportunity to network with women in physics from across Canada, to facilitate the sharing of experiences, ideas and advice. WIPC aims to foster a sense of community and belonging among participants.
The conference features:
- Expert panels on career advancement and work-life balance
- Networking workshops
- Oral and poster sessions for attendees
- Social activities
- Plenary science talks from leading women in physics
We welcome attendance by people of all genders.
