Student Volunteers make a commitment to volunteer for a total of either 18 or 30 hours (approximately) between Saturday, 29 July 2006 and Thursday, 3 August 2006.

All volunteers will receive a Conference Access badge (equivalent to a Full Conference registration, excluding conference documentation). All volunteers who fulfill their commitment may also be eligible to receive a copy of the Conference proceedings following the conference.

Volunteers who fulfill 30 hours or more and who do not live in the Boston area are eligible for up to six nights of accommodation in conference housing. Housing is provided according to need. Up to four students of the same gender will be assigned to each room. Further information on housing will be provided upon acceptance as a student volunteer.

All volunteers are responsible for their own travel to and from Boston as well as their own meals during their time at the conference, though some limited Travel Assistance awards are available.

Travel Assistance awards will be handled this year by granting eligibility up to a maximum amount, per person. After arriving in Boston, Student Volunteers must meet their commitment to the program (either 18 or 30 hours) in order to receive their award, or to be eligible to receive tickets to events, receptions, and the Electronic Theater.
