Funding for Student Volunteers

We are pleased to announce that there is funding available to partially support travel to HRI2011 for Student Volunteers.  Students receiving support will be expected to volunteer time to help with on-site registration and with general duties, as needed, from 5 March (early on-site registration, tutorials and workshops) to 9 March, 2011.

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.  To request funding, please send the following information to Selma Sabanovic (

(1) Provide:
1. Your Name;
2. Your Affiliation (name and address of college/university);
3. Your Contact Information (email address and telephone number(s)).

(2) Indicate:
1. Whether you are a part-time or full-time student, and include the name of your faculty advisor with email and telephone contact information;

3. If you are receiving or requesting funding from the Young Researchers Workshop on 5 March 2011;
4. Please include information about your area of study.

(3) A statement of your requested funding amount and a brief justification of your funding needs (250 words maximum).

Note that you do not have to have an accepted paper/poster at HRI2011 to be considered for financial support, although students with accepted work will be given priority. The deadline for applying for Student Volunteer funds by submitting the requested information is February 1, 2011.
