How does it works?

As a volunteer you can attend all the conference events including sessions, forum, social events, etc., but you are required to dedicate you time and volunteer in setting-up and tearing down the conference events first. The busiest day is Wednesday, which is the day we register most people. Thursday and Friday are also busy, but we make sure that the volunteers are able to take in as much of the conference as possible. The work schedule is prepared by the Volunteer Coordinator who manages the volunteer crews. Training on all positions will be provided.
