Call for Student Volunteers

RecSys 2020, the 14th 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 online, worldwide, from September 22-26, 2020.

Student volunteers are essential to the success of the RecSys conference. In return for help at the conference, student volunteers receive a free conference registration and the opportunity to interact and network with top RecSys contributors and organizers.

Duties for student volunteers include:
* Attending a training session for volunteers before the conference
* Checking prerecorded presentation videos and subtitles
* Contacting speakers and helping them test the online conference system
* Helping coordinate online meetings for keynotes, paper sessions, poster sessions, and online social events
* Moderating Q&A, chat, and discussion boards throughout the conference
* Answering attendees' questions in the conference online help desk

Student volunteers usually get to attend most of the sessions, even when working. There will be approximately 5-8 scheduled hours per volunteer during the conference. Working hours will be scheduled in a suitable time considering each volunteer's local timezone.


Volunteers must be undergraduate, Master's, or Ph.D. students during the 2020-2021 academic year. Students of all backgrounds, regardless of discipline, are encouraged to apply. You do not need to have a paper accepted to participate. No previous student volunteer experience is required, but we are looking for enthusiastic and reliable people with fluency in English. Geographic diversity will be particularly encouraged to ensure a high coverage of multiple timezones.


Submit your application via the following form: The deadline for applications is July 19, 2020.
