ICTIR 2015 student volunteers

Call for Student Volunteers

ICTIR 2015 (http://ictir2015.org) is looking for student volunteers to participate in this year’s conference being held in Northampton, MA, USA on September 27-30, 2015.

Volunteer commitments will vary, but at a minimum you will be expected to be available during one half of a conference day (a maximum of 8 hours). Assignments may include helping with registration, packing conference bags, preparing nametags, holding microphones during paper sessions, photography, assisting with AV, assisting with tutorials, setup and break-down for poster session, prepare and clean-up for tutorials and paper sessions, social media, guiding people to/from the banquet, or other administrative duties. We will attempt to accommodate requests if there are particular sessions you do not wish to miss.

Volunteers will receive a $100 discount toward ICTIR 2015 student registration. Preference will be given to students who are not already receiving ICTIR travel awards from SIGIR. If you have already registered and are accepted, we will refund that amount to you.

To apply, send email to info@ictir2015.org no later than August 18, 2015. Include your name, contact information, affiliation, current student status, and your T-shirt size (U.S. sizing).
