              Call for Student Volunteers at ECSCW 2011

   12th European Conference on Computer Supported Cooperative Work
                  September 24-28, Aarhus, Denmark


                 Application Deadline: May 16, 2011

Student volunteers are an integral part of ECSCW and have been for many 
years. From behind the scenes you get the chance to see exciting and 
impressive contributions from the very diverse ECSCW community. And 
most importantly, being a student volunteer gives promising young 
researchers the opportunity to meet a great number of practitioners 
from an array of disciplines and expertise come together and contribute 
with cutting-edge research in the field of CSCW.

We need you to make the ECSCW conference the best it can be, and are 
therefore looking for a group of 12 creative and enthusiastic student 
volunteers to help us create the best conference experience possible! 
As a student volunteer you will assist in the practical organization 
and running of the conference.

Why become a volunteer?
The networking opportunities are invaluable! You not only gain an 
insight into the field of CSCW, but get to meet and discuss your 
interests with new and established members of the community. You will 
be part of the conference organization team and get to work closely 
with a group of people that share your interests. We will try our best 
to make sure that you get to attend the sessions you most want to see.

we can form a diverse and exciting group!
