To ensure smooth sailing for ECSCW 2019, we are looking for student volunteers (SVs) to support the daily operations of the conference. As an SV, you have the opportunity to not only attend the conference, but also to have a unique back-stage view on how the conference is run.

As a student volunteer, you will be able to attend the full conference (paper, poster and demo sessions, as well as social events), including masterclasses, free of charge. SVs are expected to take care of their own accommodation and meals, apart from lunch.

As an SV, you are expected to work around 20 hours throughout the conference. Your duties start on June 7th, when the kick-off meeting for SVs will take place. This kick-off meeting is mandatory. Duties for SVs may include: checking in attendees; technical support during sessions; setting up/restoring workshop rooms; general assistance to conference organization.
