Call for Participation | Student Volunteers
Important Dates

Student volunteers are essential to the success of the CSCW conference. In return for help at the conference, student volunteers receive a number of benefits including (please note: SV benefits are still being discussed):

While the volunteer duties are not always glamorous, they do provide a unique opportunity to interact closely with CSCW contributors, attendees, and other student volunteers. Volunteering provides a structured, cordial environment for students in various stages of their research career to become part of the CSCW community. Students often report that the 'social networks' they build from these meetings are the greatest benefit of being a volunteer. Indeed, it is not uncommon for future collaborations, internships/jobs, and friendships to be made through the SV experience.


Volunteers must be undergraduate, Master's, or Ph.D. students during the 2012-2013 academic year. All students, regardless of discipline, are encouraged to apply. No experience is required, but we are looking for enthusiastic, reliable people. Volunteers must commit to 20 volunteer hours of work at the conference during February 23-27, 2013.
