ACM Interactive Surfaces and Spaces (ISS) 2016 

Niagara Falls, Canada
November 6-9, 2016

Call for Student Volunteers:
ACM Interactive Surfaces and Spaces (ACM ISS 2016), formerly known as
the ACM International Conference on Interactive Tabletops and
Surfaces (ITS).

We are inviting students interested in the field of interactive
 surfaces and spaces to apply as student volunteers (SV).
 This is an ideal opportunity to attend the conference and to connect
 with other members of the community. SVs also receive free conference 
registration as a token of appreciation for their work.

Relevant Dates
- May 6: Applications open on
- July 10: Application deadline
- July 20: Results notification

Benefits and Duties
If you are an ISS Student Volunteer, you are committed to volunteer
for approximately  18 hours during the conference.
In return, you get ...
- Free conference registration & meals during conference
- A chance to participate in a conference for innovations on
interactive surfaces  and network with researchers in the field
- An awesome bright free t-shirt or hoodie

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, etc. SVs usually get to
attend most of the sessions, even when working.

Arriving and Leaving
SVs need to be available to help throughout the conference. You will
need to arrive  on or before Saturday afternoon (Nov. 5) for the SV
orientation and be  available until the end of the conference on
Wednesday (Nov. 9).  We also strongly encourage you to attend the
student  volunteer party on Wednesday evening. The time and place for
this party will be announced later as we are still scouting the most
interesting/unique/fun place in town.

Student Volunteer Chairs:
Diane Watson, University of Waterloo, Canada
Steve Funke, Chemnitz University of Technology, Germany
