Benefits and Duties

If you are an ACM SUI Student Volunteer, you are committed to volunteer for approximately 10 hours during the conference. In return, you get free conference registration that gives you the chance to participate in a conference for innovations on spatial user interfaces and network with researchers in the field.

Student volunteers are vital to the success of a conference. They allow conferences to run smoothly and provide attendees a friendly go-to person for assistance. They are also the heroes/heroines that help resolve any unexpected situations. Their specific duties include: bag stuffing, registration desk, AV assistance, poster and demo setup, badge checking, break monitoring, social media assistance and more. SVs usually get to attend most of the sessions, even when volunteering.

Arriving and Leaving

SVs need to be available to help throughout the conference. You will need to arrive on or before Friday afternoon (October 18) for the SV orientation and be available until the end of the conference on Sunday (October 20).

Additional Funding Opportunities

In addition to the Student Volunteer positions, there are also Travel Grants from SIGCHI available to students interested in attending SUI 2019. All interested should visit SIGCHI Student Travel Grants. The SIGCHI Travel Grants for this conference have an expected deadline of May 1, 2019.
