TEI 2019 Student Volunteer team is the core activity that keeps the conference organized and running smoothly, delivering the best experience that attendees and speakers are looking for.
As student volunteer, you will have the opportunity to get full conference pass providing you free access to the seminars, workshops, cutting edge researches in tangible, embedded, and embodied interaction, and more! This will also give you a unique chance to meet and network with established members in the community as well as your student peers.
This unique experience is exclusive for students, ranging from high school students, undergraduates, and graduate students who are enrolled in the academic year 2018-2019. Students who are graduating at the time of the conference are also welcome to apply.
Accepted students will be expected to show up on Saturday (March 16th) afternoon to receive an orientation session. During the conference, your activities will include supporting the registration process, hosting and guiding people over the different venues of the conference, supporting exhibitors in building-up and taking down their demos. Consequently, you will be present until the end of the conference, i.e. until the end of the day Thursday (March 21st). Throughout the five days of the conference (March 17-21) you will have around 20 hours of work. This should give you plenty of free time to meet with other visitors and attend various activities throughout the conference.
In case you don't get accepted as a student volunteer, we will give you the chance to sign up at the early registration price.
