Student Volunteers » Information
Each year, student volunteers provide essential support to the IEEE VisWeek 2008 Conference. The conference depends on student volunteers to staff the various conference events and special purpose conference rooms. Their enthusiastic participation enhances the conference experience for all the attendees.
Student Volunteers benefit by observing first-hand the latest advances in visualization, hearing and meeting world-class as well as next-generation visualization professionals from around the world, and building a network of research colleagues.
Applicants must be enrolled as full- or part-time undergraduate or graduate students during the 2008 academic year. Selected applications will be requested to provide proof of enrollment.
» Selection Guidelines
Every year the conference receives a lot of worthy student volunteer applications, but the number of positions available is limited. The following considerations will influence selections:
- Selection for presentation at IEEE Visualization Conference, IEEE InfoVis Conference, or IEEE VAST Symposium.
- Success as student volunteer at previous IEEE Visualization conference.
- The number of volunteers from each institution/research group may be limited to ensure broad participation.
» Application NotificationThe application period for student volunteers is closed. Applications will be reviewed after the submission deadline has passed. Applicants will be notified shortly thereafter concerning their admission into the Student Volunteer Program. In addition, some students will be put on a wait list in case positions become available.
