Student Volunteers Program

Call for ESUG student volunteers 2011

Student volunteers help keep the conference running smoothly; in return, they have free accommodations, while still having most of the time to enjoy the conference.

The program is now closed, we have accepted all candidates.

Conference details:

Edinburgh, Scotland
21st August - 26th August, 2011 (Saturday 20th if you want to participate to the smalltalk camp) - ESUG will neither pay the night from Saturday 20th to Sunday 21st nor from Friday 26th to Saturday 27th
ESUG 2011 - a gathering of industry, academia, and other Smalltalk enthusiasts.

For which period are accommodations covered? Accommodations are covered from Sunday, August 21st to Friday, August 26th (including nights from Sunday 21st to Monday 22nd and from Thursday 25th to Friday 26th). Students will be hosted in student rooms.

Which costs are not covered? Travel costs and accommodations during Camp Smalltalk (Saturday, August 20th night) preceding the conference) (unless it's necessary; contact us).

Past duties have involved handling registration as people arrive at the conference, staffing coffee machines, collecting presentation slides for ESUG right after the presentation is given, being present at an information desk to answer questions, and generally being helpful. Student volunteering makes the conference better, take a fairly small amount of time and doesn't significantly interfere with enjoying and learning from the conference.
