If you would, please pass this information on to your students and fellow faculty to help us spread the word. There are many exciting things on the horizon for this year's Student Volunteers, and we invite your students to apply to join our team at sv.siggraph.org!
A special interest group under the Association for Computing Machinery focused on computer graphics and interactive techniques, the SIGGRAPH team is preparing for the 34th annual conference in San Diego, CA August 5-9, 2007. Student Volunteers are an integral part of the conference, providing needed assistance to conference attendees and participants in exchange for entrance to the conference and, in some cases, hotel accommodations and travel grants.
Some of the benefits Student Volunteers may receive:
- Full conference access
- Travel and housing assistance possibilities
- Special sessions featuring industry professionals
- Career mentoring opportunities
- Resume and demo reel review opportunities
- Behind-the-scenes knowledge of conference happenings
- Networking opportunities with current and future industry leaders
- Advice from Student Volunteer Alumni
Student Volunteers work either 30 or 18 hours throughout the conference week, engaging in a variety of tasks such as door and session monitoring, attendee registration, and exhibit demonstration in venues such as Emerging Technologies and the Guerrilla Studio.
