Student volunteers

We are pleased to announce that there is funding available to partially support Student Volunteers’ travel to HRI 2010.  Students receiving support will be expected to volunteer time to help with on-site registration and with general duties, as needed, from 1 March (early on-site registration, tutorials and workshops) to 5 March, 2010. Being a Student Volunteer is a great way to enter the HRI research community, meet other students in your field, and attend one of most important conferences in HRI. We are looking to include students with diverse backgrounds in HRI and from all parts of the world.
