Student Volunteers

Call for Student Volunteers 

IndiaHCI conferences are one of the best events to experience being a Student Volunteer. Highly motivated, enthusiastic and talented individuals come together to join IndiaHCI conferences as Student Volunteers, or SVs. Each student volunteers participates in organizing the conference from end-to-end. They coordinate, interact and work together as teams and as individuals. They get a chance to interact closely with keynotes, chairs and organizers and with fellow community members including students.  

IndiaHCI 2020, unlike its predecessors, is a complete ONLINE event. Roles are getting redefined and challenges are new. Being a student volunteer during IndiaHCI2020 offers new and unprecedented opportunities to learn the secret of the trait and to grow as individuals. Not to mention that friendships and a long-lasting network of professionals are some of the many added advantages.

Typical responsibilities 

IndiaHCI conferences have banked heavily on several highly motivated and enthusiastic individuals working as student volunteers. While it is difficult to sum-up the volunteers’ contribution, we have compiled a list of typical responsibilities, as follows:

  • Be available for assignments during all the days of the conference.
