Student Volunteers

Update: The Student Volunteers application system is now closed, and we will not accept any late applications. All applicants will be notified by email of their status in late April.

Still want to attend the conference this year? Please review the valuable student registration discounts! SIGGRAPH Asia 2012 is now accepting Student Volunteer applications. And the SIGGRAPH 2013 Student Volunteers information will be available in September.

Are you science? Are you art? Do you daydream of computations or calculate in creativity? If so, you will find yourself right at home at SIGGRAPH 2012. Science and art will come together in one outstanding international conference to explore computer graphics and interactive techniques from both points of view, and YOU can be a part of it! You can be SIGGRAPH 2012!

The SIGGRAPH 2012 Student Volunteer Program wants to put you in a red vest with the network of students who support the conference and give you the opportunity to meet and learn from industry professionals, creators, educators, visionaries, and each other. As a Student Volunteer, you will form relationships with other students that will last for your entire career. The industry's future leaders are encouraged to apply: students who demonstrate leadership, service, and a passion for computer graphics and interactive techniques.

Benefits of being a Student Volunteer include free full admission to the complete SIGGRAPH 2012 program. This includes Courses, Talks, Technical Papers, Panels, the Reception, and much more. In addition, the benefits of being a Student Volunteer extend beyond the conference schedule to professional development and private Student Volunteer Special Sessions with top professionals who were once Student Volunteers themselves.

All of this is available to high school, undergraduate, and graduate students who are enrolled full time for at least one semester during the 2011-2012 academic year and are at least 18 years of age. Students can apply to volunteer for either 18 or 30 hours (approximately) during the conference. Volunteers who are willing to commit for at least 30 hours are eligible to apply for Travel Assistance Awards, which offer financial help for travel to and from the conference.

Also, extraordinary 30-hour applicants who live outside the Los Angeles area may be selected to receive complimentary housing during the conference.

The SIGGRAPH Student Volunteers of today are the industry leaders of tomorrow. I encourage you to take advantage of this unique opportunity! Begin your contribution to the world of computer graphics and interactive technologies as a SIGGRAPH 2012 Student Volunteer!

Join us in Los Angeles in 2012!
