The EG 2017 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 integral part of the success of a conference. We are recruiting a team of enthusiastic and reliable students who help us host and manage a very successful, 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;
  • help desk support;
  • setting up and maintaining posters and/or other arrangements;
  • audio and video support;
  • fielding questions at technical sessions;
  • providing help and information to participants;
  • helping hand for organizing committee.

As a general rule, no special skills are required except for a couple of positions. For these, we are looking for people with good photography, blogging, tweeting and A/V skills.

Volunteers are required to show up 5-10 minutes before their allotted service times 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 volunteer hours of work at the conference.

For their time and unmeasurable efforts, student volunteers will receive an awesome free t-shirt and a full student registration. This includes free access to the entire conference, including technical sessions, workshops, poster sessions, reception and conference dinner.

Arriving and Leaving

Responsibilities and time allotment during the conference will be sent to the volunteers a few weeks before the start of the conference, and volunteers must plan to attend the information meeting on April 24th 2017 morning before the start of the conference.

Student volunteers are responsible for their traveling and lodging expenses.
