The CEU program (CEU19) will run in parallel with the Annual Fall Meeting of the Division of Nuclear Physics of the American Physical Society.

CEU19 Application Instructions

Students who have already presented their project at a CEU poster session or with advance projects are encouraged to submit an abstract for a DNP oral presentation in the NEW undergraduate session category no. 17 on the DNP submission form. (Note: Students who wish to present an oral presentation in their topical session must submit their APS abstract by July 1.) Funding for undergraduates with oral presentations will be considered as funding and space permits. Please fill out the CEU application and indicate you submitted an oral abstract. 

Priority may be given to junior and senior students and those who have not previously attended a CEU conference.

Please submit your poster/oral abstract to the APS before filling out the CEU application. Your application is not complete until you have filled out both the APS abstract and the CEU application.

Target Date:  All application materials must be received by Wednesday, July 24, 2019. Complete applications (including both CEU application and APS abstract) submitted by this date will receive full consideration. However, we will continue to accept applications until all positions are filled. 

  • All undergraduate students are welcome to attend CEU events, however, only students accepted into the CEU program will present at the CEU poster session. If your abstract is not accepted into the poster session there will be an option to convert your abstract into an oral presentation in the special undergraduate oral session.
  • You should register with the link emailed to your account on file.  Do not register with the link on the DNP website.
