The Atlantic Undergraduate Physics and Astronomy Conference (AUPAC), is an annual conference supported through the Atlantic Provinces Council of the Sciences (APICS). APICS is a federally registered charity with a mandate to promote science education and research in Atlantic Canada. Their primary outreach activity is the coordination of annual academic conferences for students in a number of disciplines. These conferences are planned on behalf of APICS by students and faculty on a voluntary basis at various post-secondary institutions across the region. Formerly known as AUPC, prior to the inclusion of Astronomy, AUPAC has been "in operation" since 1990 and is typically held during the first weekend of February. This conference is dedicated to showcasing the research activities of undergraduate physics and astronomy students across the region and provides an excellent opportunity for students to meet and share ideas.
