Extended deadline: Call for Student Volunteers

The deadline for Student Volunteering has been extended to May 31st, 2018.

MobileHCI2018 is seeking highly motivated student volunteers. As a student volunteer, you are the face of the conference. You will assist chairs, speakers, and attendees. You will play a key role in making the conference a success.

Your duties include:

  • Setting up the conference infrastructure (coffee, tea areas, computers, projectors…)
  • Running the registration desk (attendees’ packs, badges…)
  • Assisting speakers (computers, microphones, directions…)
  • Helping conference attendees (where to find the room, toilets…)
  • Coordinating with technicians (in case of something goes wrong with the computers…)
  • Providing support to activities (demos, workshops…)

In return, you will get:

  • An awesome MobileHCI 2018 t-shirt
  • Free conference registration, including the meals provided by the conference registrations
  • A chance to meet and network with established members in the MobileHCI community as well as your student peers
  • A chance to improve your English

As a Student Volunteer, you agree to:

  • Attend the SV orientation meeting/s which will be organized during June / July 2018. Overseas students will take part in the meeting/s remotely (online)
  • Attend other, more informal meetings, which will be conducted during the conference
  • Show up on time for tasks during the conference – at least 15 minutes before the task is due to begin
  • Work approximately 8h during the conference
