Call for Student Volunteers

The effectiveness and smooth operation of a conference, including MobileHCI 2023, greatly relies on student volunteers (SVs). We are looking for approachable and eager volunteers to contribute to the success of MobileHCI 2023. As this conference will be held in a hybrid format, we need student volunteers both on-site and online. SVs will help with various conference tasks, such as supporting presenters and guiding attendees throughout the event space.
In exchange for your important contribution (roughly 16-20 hours), you will enjoy complimentary conference registration, a free t-shirt, and numerous other perks. This experience will allow you to connect with fellow students in the SV program, expand your research network, and directly interact with conference participants and organizers.
