Student Volunteers

Call for Student Volunteers

What is a student volunteer?

Student volunteers (SVs) help the organisers keep the conference running smoothly.   The student volunteer programme is a great opportunity for students to network with a range of attendees from fellow students, to leading practitioners and academics.

What does a student volunteer do?

SVs are available from Sunday, 10th July to Friday, 15th July, and work approximately 15 – 20 hours.

Their duties include:

  • Help with registration duties (e.g. setting up conference bags)
  • Checking badges
  • Helping setup and run conference sessions

What are the job requirements?

Potential SVs need to be motivated, enthusiastic, flexible, and punctual.  They also must be enrolled in a PhD, masters, or undergraduate programme at the time of the conference.

If the programme is over-subscribed, priority will be given to  Doctoral Consortium participants.

What do I get in return?

  • Free attendance at the conference
  • Free accommodation at Bournemouth [subject to availability]
  • Free conference T-shirt

How do I apply?

You should submit a two-page position paper via the Student Volunteers track on EasyChair.  The position paper should describe why you want to attend, and what you hope to get out of the student volunteer experience.  You also need to confirm that you will be available between 10th July to 15th July.

SV position papers must be submitted by 5:00 p.m GMT on May 2nd 2016.
