Student Volunteer Program
Undergraduate and graduate students are encouraged to apply as volunteers to help with the administration of the conference. In exchange, students will receive complimentary conference registration, housing (for out-of-town volunteers) and most meals. Student volunteers will have the opportunity to learn about and discuss the latest high performance computing and networking technologies and meet leading researchers from around the world while contributing to the success of SC08.
Volunteers will be expected to be available for a total of 4-5 hours of work per day during the week of the conference. No special skills or experience are necessary for most volunteer positions; however, some familiarity with computing platforms, audio/visual equipment, or office equipment can be helpful.
Student Volunteer applications are due Sunday, August 31, 2008. Successful applications will be notified of their acceptance by Friday, September 5, 2008.
Student Volunteer application forms are available at the SC08 Submissions site http://submissions.supercomputing.org/.
