Open Call: Student Volunteers

Becoming an IMX Student Volunteer (SV) provides a unique opportunity to contribute to the organization of an international conference as well as to interact closely with IMX contributors, attendees, and your peers from around the world. As SV, you will get a full conference registration pass providing you with access to all the paper sessions, workshops, demos, and social events. SVs are expected to contribute around 10-15 hours of voluntary work during the conference. As a reminder, IMX 2021 will be entirely virtual, so volunteering will take place in and around the conference platform.


IMX SVs will be chosen via a competitive process. To apply please submit your application via this link: 

The application will open on 1st April 2021 and will close on 25th April 2021.

Selected student volunteers will be notified no later than 14th May, 2021.


To register as a Student Volunteer at IMX 2021, you must be enrolled as an undergraduate, masters, or doctoral student between January and May in 2021 (e.g., Spring 2021). Students who are graduating at the time of the conference are also eligible to apply. IMX 2021 will be held virtually from New York City, USA on the 21st-23rd of June. No prior experience is required to apply: we are looking for people who are friendly, enthusiastic, and reliable. 

Since the conference is virtual, SVs volunteering will include duties such as basic tech support, discussion monitoring, and helping keep sessions on schedule. As no prior experience is required, training and information will be provided during orientation.


As SV, you will be expected to: 

  1. Contribute around 10-15 hours of volunteer work during the three days of the conference. 
  2. Be punctual and show up on time to your assigned tasks 
  3. Attend an orientation social event on the 21st of June 
  4. Be positive, friendly, enthusiastic and helpful.
