To be considered as a Student Volunteer for the HCII2018 Conference, you need to login and apply online through the Conference Management System.

In order to login, you need to have a CMS account.

Acceptance Notification

All applications received by 15 January 2018 will be reviewed and volunteers selected will be notified by 5 February 2018.

A reserve list will also be drawn up upon applications received by the preliminary registration deadline, but not initially selected.

Student applicants that are not selected to become volunteers will be offered the chance to register taking advantage of the early registration rate.


Late Applications

Applications received after the deadline, 15 January 2018, will be reviewed and the selected ones will be placed at the end of the reserve list in the order in which they are received. Since previous experience has shown that more students apply than can be accepted, early application is strongly encouraged. However, applicants on the reserve list may also be accepted. Therefore, do not be discouraged if you are applying after the original deadline.


If you have any questions, please send them via email to Student Volunteer Administration.


Please note that HCII2018 Student Volunteers are responsible for their own travel arrangements and accommodation.


Applicants selected that have already registered and paid for their participation will get a full refund.
