Message from Cecilia, Mark, and Reinhard, Co-Chairs
Student Volunteers are an integral part of the success of each CHI conference. Students from all disciplines and cultures are invited to be part of the most exciting event in the HCI field. A wide variety of positions are available at the conference. Many of the duties are not glamorous, but all provide opportunities to interact with CHI2004 contributors, attendees, and committee members from all parts of the world and from diverse areas of the HCI community. We now have a Student Volunteers online community and web site devoted entirely to student volunteering; visit us through Student Volunteer News. Please join us in making the CHI2004 conference a great success!”

About Student Volunteers

In return for their help at the conference, student volunteers will receive many benefits including free conference registration, some meals, a Conference Reception ticket, a student volunteer T-shirt, and an invitation to the volunteer thank-you party. Activities such as informal research presentations to other student volunteers and lunch with “famous names” and recruiters have been successful in the past and are planned again for this conference. Student volunteers are responsible for their own housing, travel to and from Vienna, and any meals that are not provided. Reduced housing rates are often available for student volunteers. Student volunteers will have access to the student vounteer email list and web site, which helps to create a community before the conference.


Volunteers must be undergraduate, Master’s, or Ph.D. students during the 2003-2004 academic year. All students, regardless of discipline, are encouraged to apply. No experience is required. We are looking for enthusiastic, intelligent, reliable people. Volunteers must commit to 20 volunteer hours of work at the conference between 24 April and 29 April 2004.

How to Apply to Become a Student Volunteer

Student Volunteer applications are now closed.

Apply online at Be prepared to provide:

  • Name
  • Contact Information (Address, Country, Email, Day Phone, E-mail)
  • Experience (Prior Volunteer Activities)
  • Languages Spoken
  • Affiliation (School, Department, Satus Full-time/Part-Time)

A valid, dated student identification card or a letter from your university or school must be presented when registering at the conference.

Upon Acceptance

Student volunteers will be chosen at random from applications received by the Preliminary Deadline, Monday 6 October 2003. Those volunteers initially selected will be notified by late October so they can begin making any necessary arrangements and get involved in the online student volunteer community. The waiting list will consist of applications received by the Preliminary Deadline but not initially selected. Applications received after the Preliminary Deadline and before the Final Deadline of 12 January 2004 will be placed at the end of the waiting list in the order in which they are received. Historically, more students apply than can be accepted, so early application is encouraged. However, applicants on the waiting list are often accepted, so do not be discouraged if you are applying close to or after the preliminary deadline.
