Call for Student Volunteers

IEEE VR 2020: IEEE Conference on Virtual Reality and 3D User Interfaces
March 22nd - 26th, 2020

Important Dates

  • January 1, 2020: Open student volunteer application
  • February 9, 2020: Close student volunteer application
  • February 16, 2020: Student volunteer notification of acceptance

Dedicated and enthusiastic student volunteers (SVs) are crucial for the organization of a successful conference. Serving as a student volunteer is also a great chance to meet and interact with other scientists from the field of Virtual Reality. We look forward to receiving your application for IEEE VR 2020.


Besides the stimulating experience, SVs will receive an excellent package of benefits that includes: free registration, an extra student volunteer’s social, and free housing for non-local volunteers when possible. Travel funds for SVs cannot be provided.


You must be willing to work about 20 hours during the conference. Furthermore, you must be available for SV orientation at the main venue on the afternoon of March 21–a day before the conference begins. If you cannot commit yourself to this time frame and this amount of work, then please do not take away a slot from another willing student. Your SV duties will include: working the registration desk, providing assistance to speakers and attendees, checking badges for attendance, and more. In addition, this year we have introduced a new role: photography volunteer.


All full-time undergraduate and graduate students interested in Virtual Reality are eligible. We will give priority to those SVs with an accepted paper/poster presentation. In addition, we will consider geographic distance from the conference, as well as diversity in the area of research.


The application for student volunteers is now closed!
