Student Volunteers

Application Instructions

To apply to be a student volunteer, please sign up and enroll at the CHI SV Portal. Applications from undergraduate, masters and Ph.D. students are all welcome.


If you have any questions or problems, please contact the Student Volunteers Chair (Mr. Pascal Knierim):

Duties and Benefits

Student volunteers will be required to help set up and perform a diverse variety of work during the conference, as needed. Duties will include bag stuffing, manning the registration desk, AV assistance, poster and demo setup, badge checking, break monitoring, etc. Volunteers will also need to be available during the conference if new tasks come up. (There will be approximately 16 scheduled work hours per student volunteer.)

Student volunteers will usually be able to attend most of the conference sessions, even while working.

In addition to the innate joys of performing the duties above, MUM student volunteers will get in return an awesome MUM 2018 SV t-shirt, free conference registration, including the meals provided by the conference registrations and most importantly, a chance to meet and network with established members in the community as well as your student peers.

Arriving and Leaving

Student volunteers need to be available to help throughout the conference. You will need to arrive by November 24 (Saturday) for the Student Volunteers Orientation, and you should not plan to leave the conference venue until conference teardown on November 28 (Wednesday). We strongly encourage you to stay as long as you possibly can, since we intend to host the traditional small party for all student volunteers on Wednesday evening. (Details on the party will be announced later.)


We will not be able to provide free accommodations for student volunteers, but we will facilitate you teaming up with other student volunteers for sharing rooms.
