***Please forward to interested students at your institution***

Enrollment for CSCW 2014 student volunteers is now open! Go to http://www.chisv.org/cscw2014/news to submit your application. The deadline for registering is October 7.

Student volunteers are essential to the success of the CSCW conference. In return for help at the conference, student volunteers receive a number of benefits including:

* Free conference registration & reception ticket

* A fabulous t-shirt sure to be the envy of all conference goers

* Even more awesome SV benefits are still being planned and discussed, so stayed tune!

While the volunteer duties are not always glamorous, they do provide a unique opportunity to interact closely with CSCW contributors, attendees, and other student volunteers. Volunteering provides a structured, cordial environment for students in various stages of their research career to become part of the CSCW community. Students often report that the 'social networks' they build from these meetings are the greatest benefit of being a volunteer. Indeed, it is not uncommon for future collaborations, internships/jobs, and friendships to be made through the SV experience.


Volunteers must be undergraduate, Master's, or Ph.D. students during the 2013-2014 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. No previous student volunteer experience is required, but we are looking for enthusiastic and reliable people. Volunteers must commit to 20 volunteer hours of work at the conference during February 15-19, 2014.

Please note that enrollment in the "CHISV" system does not mean that you have been selected -- we will run a lottery and notify individuals of their status on October 14.
