The organising committee is seeking a number of enthusiastic and motivated
people to join the ECSCW 2007 Student Volunteer team.

of the conference. In exchange for their work, they will be rewarded by a
number of benefits including:

with the workshop organisers);

A number of low-cost accommodation options in the surroundings of the
Conference venue will be made known to all student volunteers, and an
informal mailing list will be created to allow all the volunteers to
organise travel and accommodation together. Limerick city is served by a
