Student Volunteers

Call for student volunteers

Student volunteers (SVs) are an essential part of the working and success of TVX 2019 conference. Being an SV provides a unique opportunity to contribute to organizing a conference as well as to interact closely with TVX contributors, attendees, and your peers, from around the world. As student volunteer, you will also receive a free t-shirt and get a full conference pass providing you access to all the paper sessions, workshops, demos, and social events. However, travel, accommodation and subsistence (outside of meals provided as part of the conference programme) are not part of the SV benefits. As an SV, you are expected to contribute to around 10-15 hours of voluntary work during the conference.

How to apply

TVX SVs will be chosen via a competitive process. To apply please submit an application to the SV chairs that includes the following information:

  1. Name
  2. Affiliation
  3. The title and level (e.g. Masters, PhD) of your current programme of study
  4. A brief statement (150 words max) that describes why you would benefit from being an SV at TVX 2019 and how you will make a positive contribution in the role.

Applications should be emailed to the SV chairs by the deadline provided in the sidebar of this page. The email address for submitting applications is:  sv@tvx2019.com
