The Canadian Undergraduate Physics Conference (CUPC) is a non-profit annual research conference organized by students, for students. Approximately 300 physics undergraduates gather at CUPC to present their research, socialize, and network with the physics academia and industry. CUPC also features lab tours, plenary lectures, and a graduate fair to encourage engagement amongst all levels of the physics community. The conference was first held in 1965 by McGill University and the University of Toronto, with the help of the Canadian Association of Physicists (CAP). CUPC has since grown into the largest undergraduate physics conference in North America, and has been held in 8 different provinces by over 20 different institutions.
The 53rd Canadian Undergraduate Physics Conference will be held at Carleton University, in October 2017.
