Volunteer Information

Each year student volunteers provide essential support to the annual IEEE Visualization 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.

The Student Volunteer Program is looking for reliable, hard working and enthusiastic student volunteers to help us create a great experience and a premier conference. If you would like to take part in the conference as a student volunteer, please fill out the application form.


Applicants must be enrolled as full- or part-time undergraduate or graduate students during the 2007 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 Vis 2007 Conference or associated symposia.
  • Previous success as an IEEE Vis volunteer.

The number of volunteers from each institution/research group may be limited to ensure broad participation.

Application Period Now Closed

The application period for Student Volunteers is now closed. The committee is now reviewing applications and will be contacting selectees shortly. We thank all those who applied.

Notification of Acceptance

  • Free conference/symposium registration.
