oSC17 is just around the corner, and if you want to be part of making it awesome you can now sign up to become a volunteer!

Volunteers are invaluable to conferences, and they play a major role in creating a pleasant conference atmosphere for attendees.

We need volunteers to help out with various things throughout the conference, such as:

  • Help at the registration desk, which involves:

    • welcoming people at the conference and marking them as attended

    • help people find what they are looking for (rooms, toilet, bus stop, etc.)

    • assist people with the schedule, and direct them to the next available session (keynote, workshop, etc)

    • provide people with a t-shirt and urge them to put on a name tag

    • handle incidents that might come up

  • Help with speakers by making sure that:

    • speakers know where they need to be before their talk

    • there is a bottle of water and glasses at the speaker desk

    • speakers upload their presentation and make the link public in OSEM

  • Help setup everything on Friday morning, and tear down on Sunday evening

Volunteers will receive an instructions sheet, as well as a short briefing. Please be available at the registration desk 15-30 minutes prior to the time you are scheduled to volunteer.

Make sure to fill out the volunteers form, so that we know we can count on your help!

See you soon at oSC17, 26-28 May 2017!
