Call for Student Volunteers: SIGGRAPH 2012

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.

Now in its 39th year, the SIGGRAPH conference is the premier international event on computer graphics and interactive techniques.

Become A Student Volunteer on SIGGRAPH 2012!

The SIGGRAPH 2012 Student Volunteer Program 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.

All students, regardless of discipline or area of interest, are encouraged to apply. No prior experience with the annual SIGGRAPH conference or computer graphics is required. The organizers are looking for reliable, hard-working, self-starting, independent, enthusiastic students who are excited about the conference and who want to be among the next generation of leaders and professionals.

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.
