To facilitate conference operations, some Student Volunteers will be appointed as Team Leaders. These individuals will manage other Student Volunteers at specific conference venues and coordinate volunteer duties with the SIGGRAPH Asia 2012 Committee members.
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. Team Leaders must be organized, enthusiastic, and dedicated towards the smooth running of the conference. 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 36 hours during the conference, excluding orientation. All Team Leaders must arrive in Singapore before 4pm on 26 November 2012 for a briefing session on the evening of this day.
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.
All Team Leaders receive six nights of accommodation from 26 November 2012 to 2 December 2012. A minimum of two leaders of the same gender will share each room. 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.
