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 student conference registration pass providing you with access to all the paper sessions, workshops, demos, meals, and social events; but this registration cannot cover papers to be published in ACM DL.
You can also apply for Gary Marsden Travel Awards (GMTA) https://imx.acm.org/2023/equity/diversity-inclusion-and-student-grants/ for travel and other expenses for IMX. SVs are expected to contribute around 8-12 hours of voluntary work during the conference.
How to apply
IMX SVs will be chosen via a competitive process. Please use the following link to apply: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLScnM5bPq3t_DNAmjoXKZloyUj-bsaaUEb-giXy9K8MP_tcqaQ/viewform?usp=sf_link
The application will open on April 20, 2023 and will close on May 4, 2023.
To register as a Student Volunteer at IMX 2023, you must be enrolled as an undergraduate, masters, or doctoral student between January and May in 2023 (i.e., Spring 2023). Students who are graduating at the time of the conference are also eligible to apply. IMX 2023 will be held in Nantes Université, in France, from 12nd to 15th of June. No prior experience is required to apply: we are looking for people who are friendly, enthusiastic, and reliable.
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 8-12 hours of volunteer work during the three days of the conference.
2. Be punctual and show up on time to your assigned tasks.
3. Be positive, friendly, enthusiastic and helpful.
