Call for Student Volunteers

The tenth IEEE Computer Society Visualization conference is now taking applications for student volunteers. In exchange for helping to run the conference, student volunteers may attend paper and panel sessions as well as workshops, symposia, and tutorials. Student volunteers will be asked to work a minimum of approximately 14 hours. Duties will include such tasks as monitoring entrance to sessions, assisting with registration, and running miscellaneous errands. This is a great opportunity to be a part of the cutting edge in computer graphics and data visualization.

The conference is relatively small (about 550 attendees last year), and will draw on noted researchers in a number of disciplines. There are plenty of opportunities to interact with the best and most prominent people in the field!

This year's conference will have exciting tracks covering Visualization Algorithms, Visualization Techniques/Emerging Technologies (including Human Perception and Human Factors), and Visualization Applications, as well as special Late Breaking Hot Topics sessions. In addition the following important symposia will be held:

Some representative student volunteer tasks may be:

  • run registration desk and distribute proceedings
  • check badges for symposia & workshops
  • check badges for tutorials
  • check badges for papers and panel sessions
  • various odd jobs
  • attend the student volunteer party

Student volunteer benefits:

  • No conference fees.
  • Attend papers, panels, workshops, symposia, and tutorials.
  • Conference proceedings.
  • Student volunteer party.
  • Maybe more?

Lodging Information:

Although the conference cannot pay for student lodging, we will try to arrange for reduced rates at the conference hotel (which has been successfully arranged for the past five years). We will also seek out other, less expensive hotels in the area and help interested students get together to share room costs. There may be additional financial help available for exceptional cases.

Prospective student volunteers may submit applications on-line starting in mid-April, 2000. Bookmark this page to get updated information on the application process.

See you in Salt Lake City!
