Call for Student Volunteers - SIGIR 2013 Dublin, Ireland - July 28th -
August 1st, 2013


The 36th annual ACM SIGIR conference will be held in Dublin,
Ireland. For more information on the conference, please visit:

We are seeking dedicated and enthusiastic student volunteers to support
the running of SIGIR 2013.

Student volunteers will need to commit to approximately 8 hours of
effort during the conference. Volunteers will be expected to assist
staff with tasks such as organising conference material, supporting
sessions to ensure they run smoothly, checking badges, helping people
locate sessions, running errands etc. These tasks will typically consist
of multiple three to four hour time periods, including the tutorial and
workshop days.

Serving as a student volunteer is a great way to get involved in the
conference, while contributing to the SIGIR community. Volunteers will
receive a registration waiver for the main conference including welcome
reception and the conference banquet.

Unfortunately we are not able to provide travel support as part of the
student volunteer package. Students wishing to apply for travel support

Students interested in volunteering should complete the following form –

There are a limited number of volunteer positions available.
Applicants must be enrolled as a student at the time of the

that date, applications will only be considered if there is unfilled
Applicants will be notified of the outcome of their application by June
