How To Apply

To be considered as a Student Volunteer for the HCII2020 Conference, you need to login and apply online through the Conference Management System (CMS).

During the online application process, you will be required to submit a scanned copy of an official letter (in English) from your University or School, duly signed and stamped, indicating your current student status. This letter must be presented when registering at the Conference.

Acceptance Notification

All applications received by 31 January 2020 will be reviewed and volunteers selected will be notified by 12 February 2020.

A reserve list will also be drawn up upon applications received by the preliminary registration deadline, but not initially selected.

Student applicants that are not selected to become volunteers will be offered the chance to register taking advantage of the early registration rate.

Late Applications

Applications received after the deadline, 31 January 2020, will be placed at the end of the reserve list in the order in which they are received. Since previous experience has shown that more students apply than can be accepted, early application is strongly encouraged. However, applicants on the reserve list may also be accepted. Therefore, do not be discouraged if you are applying after the original deadline.
