Welcome to the Cambridge University Physics Society's website.
A new Committee has been elected at the Annual General Meeting of CUPS at the end of Lent Term, and it is an exceptionally large one. This means we're very much looking forward to an eventful (and events-full) year 2013-14!
But before we jump to autumn again, there are a few more things and events:
As always, we will be keeping you up to date with our events via e-mails, this website, the Facebook page and Twitter account, as well as our Calendar and the talks.cam site - the latter only featuring the talks.
Founded in 1940s, the Cambridge University Physics Society (CUPS) provides the perfect social scene for everyone with an interest in physics.
We organise regular events including lecture series, cocktail evenings, the annual Omega Dinner, and a May Week Garden Party. CUPS presents an unrivalled opportunity to enjoy talks by internationally renowned speakers, which have included Stephen Hawking, Jim Al-Khalili, and Roger Penrose, on all subjects ranging from the cutting edge, to the purely historical, philosophical, astronomical, or biological.
A drinks reception follows each talk, where there is an opportunity for informal discussion with the speaker.
CUPS is very proud to be sponsored by ECM, Metaswitch Networks, BP, Hitachi, Detica, Microsoft Research, ChinLink, Nexus (IOP) and our very own University of Cambridge Cavendish Laboratory.
