*Call for Student Volunteers. ISMAR 2018.*


*Become a Student Volunteer*

The student volunteers keep running ISMAR smoothly. They man the
registration desk, help setting up demo sessions and provide support to the
organizing committee. For the upcoming ISMAR 2018, we need friendly and
responsive volunteers to help us out.

*Important Dates*

   - Submission Deadline for Application: *August 6th, 2018 (all
   deadlines: 23:59 AoE)*

*How to apply:*

Applications are open to all undergraduate and postgraduate students
interested in cutting edge augmented reality research. In order to join the
ISMAR team as a volunteer, you must be enrolled for at least one semester
during the academic semester before the conference. Student volunteers
receive free conference registration in return for 18-20 hours of volunteer
work during the conference. Some preference will be given to international
students presenting work at the conference to help with the cost of
traveling to Munich. To apply to be a student volunteer, please fill out
the *application form
ioC6zwiMK0qTQUWQx74_BX_fA_jPzeBJV06pw/viewform) until Monday, August 6.
This is two weeks after the poster notification date.

*Selection Guidelines:*

Every year the conference receives a lot of worthy student volunteer
applications, but the number of positions available is limited. The
following considerations will influence selections:

   - Selection for presentation at ISMAR18.
   - Success as a student volunteer at previous ISMAR conference or other.
   - Preference is given to PhD, then masters, then undergraduate students
   though we encourage everyone to apply.
   - The number of volunteers from each region, institution and research
   group may be limited to ensure broad participation.

*Work as a student volunteer:*

   - You will agree to a volunteer contract, in which you agree to:
   - Work at least 18-20 hours.
   - Show up on time to tasks.
   - Attend an orientation session.
   - Arrive at the conference by October 14.


In return we commit to waive your registration fee. We provide student
volunteers all of the other benefits received by registered conference
attendees, including free lunch and break food. Furthermore, volunteering
at ISMAR provides an excellent opportunity for networking with some of the
leading minds of AR research. The volunteers get insight into the logistics
behind a major conference and gather valuable working experience.

If you need to communicate to us, please do not hesitate to contact us
through email *sv_chairs[at] <>*. Looking
forward to meeting all of you!
