Imagine being an integral part of the creation of the world's biggest and greatest conference in computer graphics and interactive techniques. As a Student Volunteer, you will go behind the scenes for an international event that draws thousands of people who share a passion for these advanced technologies, and you will meet and learn directly from industry professionals, artists, and teachers. The SIGGRAPH 2010 Student Volunteers Program is a unique opportunity for a student to become one of the "People Behind the Pixels".
As a Student Volunteer, you will have admission to SIGGRAPH 2010's complete program, including Courses, Talks, Technical Papers, Panels, the Reception, and much more, plus many exclusive Student Volunteer events: résumé and portfolio reviews, presentations by industry heavyweights, and mentoring from the industry's stars. Several of these influential figures began their journey into stardom as SIGGRAPH Student Volunteers.
All of this is available to high school, undergraduate, and graduate students who are enrolled full time for at least one semester during the 2009-2010 school academic year and are at least 18 years of age.
Students can apply to volunteer for either 18 or 30 hours (approximately) during the conference. Volunteers who are willing to commit for at least 30 hours are eligible to apply for Travel Assistance Awards, which offer financial help for travel to and from the conference.
Also, extraordinary 30-hour applicants who live outside the Los Angeles area may be selected to receive complimentary housing during the conference.
The SIGGRAPH Student Volunteers of today are the computer graphics leaders of tomorrow. I encourage you to take advantage of this unique opportunity! Begin your contribution to the world of computer graphics as a SIGGRAPH 2010 Student Volunteer!
See you in Los Angeles,
SIGGRAPH 2010 Student Volunteers Chair
