The 4th ACM SIGGRAPH Conference and Exhibition on Computer Graphics and Interactive Techniques in Asia
Conference 12-15 December • Exhibition 13-15 December • Hong Kong Convention & Exhibition Centre
To facilitate operation of the conference, a number of Student Volunteers are appointed as Team Leaders. Team Leaders manage Student Volunteers at specific conference venues and coordinate volunteer duties with SIGGRAPH Asia 2011 Committee members. This is an invaluable opportunity to share your experience and enhance Student Volunteers' performance.
Applicants for Team Leader positions must meet all Student Volunteers criteria and must have demonstrated outstanding abilities as a Student Volunteer in at least one of the four most recent SIGGRAPH or SIGGRAPH Asia conferences (SIGGRAPH 2008, SIGGRAPH 2009, SIGGRAPH 2010, SIGGRAPH Asia 2008, SIGGRAPH Asia 2009 or SIGGRAPH Asia 2010). Team Leaders must be organized, enthusiastic, and dedicated to helping the conference run smoothly for attendees. They must be able to take initiative and solve problems in this dynamic and self-motivated role. Team Leaders must also be effective in managing large groups of people and performing under pressure. They are expected to volunteer at least 48 hours during the conference, not including orientation. All Team Leaders must attend a half-day Team Leader orientation session on Sunday, 11 December 2011. They are also expected to be at the conference from Sunday, 11 December 2011 through Friday, 16 December 2011.
Team Leader Application Process
Team Leader applicants must first complete the standard Student Volunteer Application. Before they submit an application, Team Leader applicants should complete one additional section containing questions related to personal skills and experience, and are required to write an additional personal statement of no more than 300 words, as described in the application.
Team Leader Recognition
All Team Leaders receive seven nights of accommodation (Saturday, 10 December 2011 to Friday, 16 December 2011). A minimum of two leaders of the same gender will share each hotel room. It may be necessary to place more than two per room, but every effort will be made to keep the number in each room to the minimum. Further information on housing will be provided upon an applicant's acceptance as a Team Leader.
Team Leaders will also receive additional conference materials beyond those offered to Student Volunteers.
All Team Leaders are responsible for their own travel to and from Hong Kong, as well as their own meals during their time at the conference. Meal vouchers may be available, but they are not guaranteed.
