APS News: Graduate Student Conference

APS News annoucement from CSU alumna, Krista Freeman (B.S., Physics '11), "International Physics Graduate Student Conference Comes to Nation’s Capital," February 2017.
As a physics Ph.D. candidate and the past chair of the APS Forum on Graduate Student Affairs (FGSA), I am delighted to invite my fellow graduate students to an upcoming international scientific meeting planned by, and exclusively for, physics graduate students. I am pleased to announce the call for abstracts for the 2017 Canadian-American-Mexican Graduate Student Physics Conference (CAM2017). This unique meeting will be held August 17-19, 2017 in Washington, D.C., and graduate students may submit abstracts and travel award applications from February 8 through April 28.
APS and FGSA hope to offer travel awards to many students at U.S. universities, and similar opportunities may be available for Canadian and Mexican students through their physical societies. For more information on CAM2017, and to apply, please visit our website at
The complete announcement appears in APS News (Volume 26, Number 2).
Krista Freeman is a member of the CSU's 2016 Class of Distinguished Alumni and current Ph.D. student at Carnegie Mellon University.
