Enrollment for CSCW 2015 student volunteers is now open! Go to <> to
submit your application. The deadline
for registering is *October 24*.

Student volunteers are essential to the success of the CSCW conference. In
return for help at the conference, student volunteers receive a number of
benefits including:

* Free conference registration & reception ticket
* A fabulous t-shirt sure to be the envy of all conference goers
* Even more awesome SV benefits are still being planned and discussed, so
stayed tune!

While the volunteer duties are not always glamorous, they do provide a
unique opportunity to interact closely with CSCW contributors, attendees,
and other student volunteers. Volunteering provides a structured, cordial
environment for students in various stages of their research career to
become part of the CSCW community. Students often report that the 'social
networks' they build from these meetings are the greatest benefit of being
a volunteer. Indeed, it is not uncommon for future collaborations,
internships/jobs, and friendships to be made through the SV experience.


Volunteers must be undergraduate, Master's, or Ph.D. students during the
2014-2015 academic year. Students of all backgrounds, regardless of
discipline, are encouraged to apply. You do not need to have a paper
accepted to participate, but you will be responsible for funding your
travel to and from the conference. No previous student volunteer experience
is required, but we are looking for enthusiastic and reliable people.
Volunteers must commit to 20 volunteer hours of work at the conference
during March 14-18, 2015.

Please note that enrollment in the "CHISV" system does not mean that you
have been selected -- we will run a lottery and notify individuals of their
status on October 27.
