XSV: Ex-Student Volunteer Mentoring Program

Have you served as a Student Volunteer in SIGGRAPH 2005, 2004, or 2003? Are you finished with school and no longer qualify for the Student Volunteers Program? Were you just so jazzed by the volunteering experience that you want to stay involved, but you're not exactly sure how?

Wonder no longer because SIGGRAPH 2006 wants to collaborate with you on a new initiative.

We are looking for a very few recent undergraduate or graduate students who have been outstanding SIGGRAPH Student Volunteers and who are interested in further critical SIGGRAPH conference volunteer work. Individuals who are interested in ACM SIGGRAPH and starting careers in computer graphics and interactive techniques will be selected for the opportunity to apprentice with a SIGGRAPH 2006 committee.

As an apprentice, you will be assigned to a specific committee and mentored by the respective program chair. With mentored assistance, you will take on appropriate responsibilities within a team of volunteers that works to make the conference a success. If you are selected, your responsibilities will start in December 2005 and will continue until the conference is over in August 2006.

This initiative promises to be very competitive. Only one position exists in each of these committees:

Courses
GraphicsNet
Panels
Sketches

And one position will be shared by these two committees:

Educators
Research Posters

Interested individuals will not apply directly, rather, they will be nominated according to the process outlined in the Nomination Procedures.

If you are interested in this program, you will need to find someone to nominate you. Take a look at the Nomination Procedures to find out more about who to ask for a nomination. If you are nominating a recently graduated student for one of these apprenticeships, you should also take a look at the Nomination Procedures.
