Call for Student Volunteers

The EG 2019 Student Volunteer program is a great opportunity for young researchers to attend a major conference in Computer Graphics and to establish and expand their network with the most relevant academics, professionals and other students in the field. Student Volunteers are an integral part of the success of a conference. We are recruiting a team of enthusiastic and reliable students who will help us to host and manage a very successful, yet productive and enjoyable conference.

Duties and Benefits

A wide range of responsibilities will be assigned to volunteers, such as:

  • registration desk support
  • participant badge checks at the venue
  • helpdesk support
  • setting up and maintaining posters and/or other arrangements
  • supporting presentation tests in the conference rooms
  • handling questions at technical sessions
  • providing help and information to participants
  • cloakroom assistance

Volunteers are required to show up at least 10 minutes before their service time, and be available to help out for unforeseen surprises, which are difficult to predict. We expect every volunteer to commit to a total of about 20 hours of work at the conference.

For their time and unmeasurable efforts, student volunteers will receive an awesome conference t-shirt and a full student registration. This includes free access to the entire event, including technical sessions, workshops, poster sessions and reception. Student volunteers usually get to attend most of the sessions, even when volunteering.

Arriving and Leaving

Student volunteers should arrive at or before 5:00 pm on Sunday (May 5th) for the SV orientation, and be available until the end of the conference on the next Friday (May 10th). Student volunteers are responsible for their traveling and lodging expenses.

Application Process

Applicants must be either PhD/MSc students, or young research fellows. To apply for a student volunteer position, please fill out this form. In case of acceptance, students will be asked to exhibit a proof of valid student status (i.e., letter signed by PhD advisor, thesis supervisor, or dean of department), which should be emailed to us to complete registration. All volunteers must have a positive attitude and good communication skills in English. Priority will be given to applicants who are either PhD or MSc students during the 2018-2019 academic year.

The deadline for applications is March 5, 2019.

We will send out notifications until March 15, 2019.
