The student volunteer organization is what keeps ISUVR running smoothly throughout the conference. You must have had student status for at least one semester during the academic year before ISUVR. We are more than happy to accept undergrad, graduate, and PhD students. We need friendly enthusiastic volunteers to help us out.
The plethora of perks you receive as Student Volunteers include free admission to the entire ISUVR 2013 program throughout the duration of the symposium, meeting fellow students sharing your interests as well as numerous opportunities to network first hand with international attendees. Do check the eligibility criteria beside before you apply and note that the application deadline is June 15, 2013, 23:59 GMT/UTC. Feel free to contact us (firstname.lastname@example.org) for any queries pertaining to your potential participation.
You will agree to a volunteer contract, in which you agree to:
- Work at least 20 hours
- Show up on time to tasks
- Attend an orientation session
- Arrive at the conference by Wednesday(July 10) morning at the latest
In return we commit to waive your registration fee, provide 2 meals a day, and most likely provide a limited amount of first-come, and of course we will give you SV T-shirts. There is always food, drinks for SV. If you need to communicate to us, please always use the email@example.com address so that both of us receive it.
Reply-to-all on our correspondence so we both stay in the loop and can better help you.
I want to skip orientation, or work less than 20 hours, or arrive on Wednesday,
can I still be an SV?
A1: No, sorry these are minimum expectations we expect from everyone.
If after you commit extenuating circumstances appear (like volcanos erupting and other strange things) please communicate with us (to firstname.lastname@example.org). All we ask is for you to communicate what your circumstances are as early as you realize a situation has come up.
I didn't get your emails and/or forgot to register by the deadlines you guys sent us and I lost my spot as an SV, can I get it back?
If this is due to you just not reading your emails, not taking care of your own stuff, not keeping your email up to date in our system, forgetting or similar things then the answer is NO, no you may not. If there are extenuating circumstances, please communicate with us (to email@example.com). All we ask is for you to communicate what your circumstances are as early as you realize a situation has come up. (Yes, we'll repeat this often).
I was nominated for an SV spot by someone and got in, will I have to do the same kind of work as other SVs?
Yes, the obligations are the same.
My advisor, or some other person, is giving a course or workshop and has a specific need and/or wants me to be the SV for that session, what do I need to do?
A4: If you already have a confirmed spot and done all the stuff you should have been doing then all you need to do is have that person communicate this to us directly (to firstname.lastname@example.org) or you may forward on the email from them.
We are looking forward to meeting all of you!
SV Chair. Nohyoung Park
