About volunteering

The HCII2016 Program for Student Volunteers gives full time university students from around the world the opportunity to attend and contribute to one of the most prestigious conferences in the field of computing and human-computer interaction. As an HCII2016 Student Volunteer, you will interact closely with researchers, academics and practitioners from various disciplines and meet other students from around the world.

The skills, talents and dedication of the Student Volunteers contribute to the overall quality of the Conference. The Student Volunteer role involves a range of duties, including, but not limited to:

  • providing assistance to the Conference Secretariat staff;
  • helping and directing other Conference participants; and
  • contributing to the overall smooth running of the Conference functions and social events.


The Student Volunteer should:

  • Be enthusiastic and intelligent with strong interpersonal skills.
  • Have experience and/or strong interest in Human-Computer Interaction.
  • Be fluent in English, which is the language of the Conference.
  • Be reliable, punctual and organized.
  • Be a self-starter.

How to apply

To be considered as a Student Volunteer for the HCII2016 Conference, you need to login and apply online through the Conference Management System (CMS). In order to login, you need to have a CMS account.

An official letter (in English) from your University or School, duly signed and stamped, indicating your current student status, must be presented when registering at the Conference. You will be required to submit a scanned copy of this letter during the on-line application process.

Acceptance notification

All applications received by 15 January 2016 will be reviewed and volunteers selected will be notified by 5 February 2016.
A reserve list will also be drawn up upon applications received by the preliminary registration deadline, but not initially selected.

Student applicants that are not selected to become volunteers will be offered the chance to register taking advantage of the early registration rate.

Late applications

Applications received after the deadline, 15 January 2016, will be placed at the end of the reserve list in the order in which they are received. Since previous experience has shown that more students apply than can be accepted, early application is strongly encouraged. However, applicants on the reserve list may also be accepted. Therefore, do not be discouraged if you are applying after the original deadline.

Applicants selected from the reserve list that have already registered and paid for their participation will get a full refund.


If you have any questions, please send them via email to Student Volunteer Administration.
