When you send in your application, it will be evaluated by the local organizing committee of the conference to which you applied (i.e. the conference that is closest to your anticipated location, January 13, 2017). At Virginia Tech we expect to be able to accept most or all of our applicants, but in case we have to limit acceptance, preference will be given to students who have not previously attended a CUWiP. 

Once you are accepted, you will be asked to register, also through a central APS site.  Lodging, food, and tours will be provided to all attendants by the conference. We encourage you to ask your department to help you with travel expenses.

Note: The CUWiP conferences are targeted towards undergraduate physics majors.
