2007 ILP Student Volunteer Program

Funds are available to provide financial support to a limited number of students who would like to attend ILP 2007. Students may apply for volunteer positions, which are assigned on a competitive basis with priority given to students who are authors of papers accepted to ILP 2007. Students accepted as volunteers will have their registration waived. In exchange, students will be required to assist with the organization of the conference.

The volunteer commitment will be 8-12 hours and may involve assembling registration packets, checking in attendees, and assisting with technical sessions, etc. Volunteer applicants will be informed of the decision by May 21. Volunteers will be provided with details of their duties once the conference schedule is determined.

In addition, volunteers can apply for a travel award which will provide a small additional amount of support to cover some portion of their travel expenses. The exact amount will depend on the number of students and available funds. Travel award applicants will be informed of the extent of the support when they are notified of a decision on May 21.

Applicants for volunteer positions should delay registration until they are notified regarding the status of their application. If applicants register before they receive notification, they will be required to pay the registration fee. This amount will be reimbursed to them later in case their volunteer status is approved. Note that the notification deadline of May 21 is after the official early-bird registration deadline. The early-bird registration deadline will be automatically extended to May 24 for those students that submit volunteer applications.
