Student Volunteers at DIS2021

Important Dates

Deadline to apply to be a Volunteer: February 18, 2021 Conference:

June 28-July 2‚Äč, 2021

Volunteers (formerly Student Volunteers or SVs) are essential to the success of the DIS2021 conference. Being a volunteer provides a unique opportunity to contribute to organizing a conference as well to interact closely with DIS contributors, attendees, and your peers. In return for your work, you will get a complimentary DIS 2021 Conference registration.

Becoming a volunteer:

While volunteers have traditionally been undergraduate, masters, or doctoral students, we anticipate that more people might face financial challenges and appreciate the chance to help with the conference operation in exchange for registration. This version of the volunteer program is only for 2021. We expect to have 30 SVs for DIS2021. A lottery will take place if we get an exceedingly large number of applicants.

Please fill out the volunteer form by the deadline to be considered

DIS2021 will take place virtually. To apply, no previous experience is required, but we are looking for people who are reliable, enthusiastic, and friendly.

  • Work around 10-15 hours before, during or after conference Attend orientation meeting
