Student Volunteers

ISMAR 06 organizing committee is recruiting student volunteers to serve in various support roles during the conference.

Student volunteer activities:

Typical student volunteer activities include helping with on-site registration, packing conference bags with proceedings, setting up and removing tables, and assisting with audio/visual problems. Student volunteers may need to arrive one or two days earlier to get oriented with the environment, organizing committee, and the resources within the conference area as well as to help with pre-conference preparations.

Why volunteering?

In return of their service, students volunteers receive free registration to this event. However, travel and accommodation expenses are at your own charge.

Due to the highly interdisciplinary nature of this community, student volunteers will have the opportunity to exchange ideas with leading researchers from various branches of science (computer science, psychology, optics, etc.) and engineering that relate to augmented reality.
