Benefits and Duties

If you are a UIST Student Volunteer, you get...

  • Free conference registration
  • Free T-shirt
  • A chance to attend the premier forum for innovations in developing human-computer interfaces

In the past, volunteers have been given up to three nights of free housing as well. As soon as this year's housing benefit is confirmed, we will post information about it.

All you need to do is help us set-up the conference and do needed work during the conference. There will be at most 10 hours of work for each of the volunteers to do.

Arriving and Leaving

When you arrive at the conference is somewhat flexible, but you should try to arrive at least a couple hours before the start of the conference on Sunday.

When you leave is also flexible, but you should try to plan it so you don't leave the hotel until sessions end on Wednesday. Also, we strongly encourage you to put off leaving until as late as you possibly can, because it's traditional to have a small party for SVs after UIST (or occasionally during UIST). The time and place for this party will be announced when we know all the SVs' travel plans.

Work Schedules

To give you an idea of what to expect, last year's schedule is available here.
