JHU Women in Physics Summit


The Women in Physics group at Johns Hopkins University (WiP @JHU) announce their first annual Women in Physics Summit, scheduled for 9AM-6PM Saturday, September 9th, 2023.

About the Summit:

This event is crafted to celebrate and foster connections among women in physics across various career stages within the Maryland/DC region. Our objective is to create a vibrant forum to highlight the significant research carried out by women in physics and related disciplines, along with enabling networking and collaborative opportunities.

Participation Opportunities:

We cordially invite members and affiliates of our institution to actively participate in this summit. We are seeking poster contributions, and we encourage departments to provide posters that illustrate the specific areas of research they focus on. Additionally, we invite individual researchers to present posters showcasing their unique research projects, equity efforts, mentoring initiatives, and more. The poster session will offer an excellent platform for undergraduate students and early-career researchers to share their summer research findings.

Location and Attachments:

The summit will be hosted at Johns Hopkins University’s Bloomberg Center for Physics and Astronomy.
