Student volunteers are an integral part of MobileHCI and have been for many years. From behind the scenes you get the chance to see exciting and impressive contributions from both academia and industry. And most importantly; being a student volunteer gives promising young researchers the opportunity to meet a great number of practitioners from an array of disciplines and expertise come together and contribute with cutting-edge research in the field of MobileHCI.

Duties include: bag stuffing, registration desk, AV assistance, poster and demo setup, badge checking, break monitoring, etc. Volunteers will be expected to work long hours.

Arriving and Leaving

SVs need to be available to help throughout the conference. You will need to arrive by the 20th of September 7pm and should not leave the hotel until sessions end on Monday. It is traditional to have a small party for student volunteers on Sunday evening. The time and place for this party will be announced when we know all the student volunteers' travel plans.
