Recap of Summer 2006 Program

Conference Experience for Undergraduates

Students that participate in our summer REU program have the opportunity to present their research at the annual Conference Experience for Undergraduates (CEU). The conference also provides students with a chance to discuss graduate school possibilities by talking with faculty and senior scientist from various graduate institutions.

The CEU is usually held in conjunction with the Fall Meeting of the Division of Nuclear Physics of the American Physical Society. This year's meeting was held in Nashville, Tennessee. Several of our 2006 REU students were able to attend and present their work.
