Interact 2011

Student Volunteers


The student volunteer program is the foundation for a smooth and successful INTERACT. A student volunteer is a key element of the conference, managing the small (or not so small) but important details of the conference.

As a student volunteer you will have the opportunity to attend the conference, select the sessions you want to attend and meet both other students and worldwide well known researchers. As a SV you are in a priviliged position to meet the people who write the papers and books you have been reading.

As an SV, you will receive:

  • free conference registration;
  • some meals;
  • a SV t-shirt;
  • thank-you dinner and party;

...and you agree to:

  • work aprox. 20 hours;
  • show up on time to tasks;
  • attend an orientation session;
  • arrive at the conference by Sunday morning (September 4);

Tasks go from answering the attendees questions and doubts, help setting up the conference rooms, handing the microphones, among others. Besides volunteers to work on regular conference tasks we are looking for students with good multimedia background. Outline it in your CV....


To submit an application, send an e-mail to until the 31th of January with a short CV (max: 2-pages) and a short paragraph stating what motivates you in being an INTERACT SV and what you expect from the conference and the SV program. ** Due to servers problems in the application period, we accepted applications until the 15th of February. This delayed the notification date. We will notify the applicants mid-March **
