Atlantic Undergraduate Physics and Astronomy Conference
St. Francis Xavier University, January 31 - February 2, 2020
Atlantic Undergraduate Physics and Astronomy Conference (AUPAC) is a student organized event under Science Atlantic that looks to publicize and advertise research of many disciplines in Physics and Astronomy to undergraduate students in the Atlantic Provinces. The universities of the Atlantic Canada take turns hosting this event and this year St. FX will have its turn to host on the weekend of January 31-February 1, 2020. Over the course of this weekend, many talks from undergraduate students will be given on numerous areas from particle physics and cosmology to atomic and solid state physics. There will also be other events such as the graduate fair, where graduate programs from across Canada advertise their programs to prospective students.
This year we are elated to have Dr. Donna Strickland, a 2018 Nobel Laureate, Renee Horton, the Lead Metallic/Weld Engineer at NASA who is also the President of the National Society of Black Physicists, Allan MacDonald, recipient of the Herzberg Medal and professor at University of Texas, Austin, and Jesse Maassen, professor at Dalhousie University, Nova Scotia, researching Electro-Thermal Transport in materials.
