Student Volunteering

Applications are open! Register through the form below.
The deadline for registering is the 8th of May 2024.
Notifications of acceptance will be sent out on May the 15th.

Student volunteers are an essential part of making the HHAI 2024 conference possible. We are looking for proactive and enthusiastic SVs to help ensure a smooth and successful conference. 

As an SV, you will be involved in various support tasks such as (but not limited to) helping attendees, assisting speakers, facilitating organizers, providing information or directions, and generally being a point of contact for all conference attendees.

As an acknowledgement of the time and energy put in as an SV, we provide several benefits including (but not limited to) the following:

  • Free conference registration
  • Food and drink during the conference
  • An exclusive SV t-shirt
  • Unique opportunities to meet and network with members of the community

Please not that benefits do not include covering accommodation or travel costs.

As a SV you are expected to honour several responsibilities:

  • Your workload is expected to be around 20 hours before and over the course of the conference.
  • You are required to attend the orientation sessions (to be announced soon). 
  • We expect you to be present for the entire duration of the main
    conference + 1 day before the conference starts (June 9-14 2024) to
    ensure successful time scheduling, to address unforeseen tasks, as well
    as opportunities to take on additional SV responsibilities.

Student volunteers take on a variety of tasks during the conference, some very simple (bringing water bottles to presenters), and some more complex (helping to set up exhibits). While we are planning to engage SVs with a broad set of tasks, we are also looking for students with experience in assisting people with accessibility needs, and/ or come from a diverse cultural, religious background to support attendees who have similar backgrounds. This opportunity is open to all students working in areas covered by HHAI 2024 and while previous experience is a plus, it is not a requirement – all necessary instruction and training will be provided.

Don’t miss the opportunity to join this great team!
