The enrollment for RecSys 2016 student volunteers is now open! Go to<> to submit your application. The deadline for registering is *July 7, 2016*.

RecSys 2016 (<>), the 10th ACM Conference on Recommender Systems, is the premier international forum for the presentation of new research results, systems and techniques in the broad field of recommender systems. The conference will be held Sept. 15-19, 2016 in Boston, MA.

Student volunteers are essential to the success of the RecSys conference. In return for help at the conference, student volunteers receive a number of benefits including:
- Free conference registration
- Free t-shirt
- Opportunities to interact and network with top RecSys contributors and organizers

Duties for student volunteers include helping to set up and perform needed work during the conference, such as AV support, registration desk, poster and demo setup, break monitoring, etc. SVs usually get to attend most of the sessions, even when working. There will be approximately 20 scheduled hours per SV between September 14 - 19, 2016. SVs will need to arrive before the evening of Sept 14th for the orientation and are expected to stay for the duration of the conference.

Volunteers must be undergraduate, Master's, or Ph.D. students during the 2016-2017 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 and your lodging. No previous student volunteer experience is required, but we are looking for enthusiastic and reliable people.

If you have any questions or problems, please contact the chairs at [log in to unmask]<mailto:[log in to unmask]>.
