What you need to do as a student volunteer: work for 8 hours (distributed in shifts) during the course of the conference. Work involves transporting materials, attending to registrations at the desk, running between various sessions to help the session chairs, etc.
What you get in return as a student volunteer: your conference registration fee is waived. (We ask that you register as normal and once you have satisfied your volunteer duties, we will refund the registration. Note that registration fee will be reimbursed to the credit card that was used when registering. These are not travel grants. So if your professor paid for registration, the fee will be returned to your professor's card.)
Only current students are eligible to be student volunteers.
Applications received before October 15 will receive full consideration, but applications will be accepted until all student volunteer positions are filled.
This application is for young researchers (within 5 years of receiving their Ph.D.) in the computer vision community who may need support to attend ICCV15. At this time we are unable to determine the exact amount of support or reimbursement we are able to give as it depends on the overall number of registrations and other elements of the conference costs. So, our plan is to have you fill in this application form and also pay for the full registration. Then, as the conference date approaches, we will be in touch regarding the amount (if any) of support we can provide. This will most likely come in the form of a reimbursement for your conference fees, but it also may require that you help during the conference, as a volunteer. (Note that registration fee will be reimbursed to the credit card that was used when registering. These are not travel grants.)
Only young researchers with accepted papers at the main conference are eligible to apply.
Students are not eligible for this support and should instead apply for the student volunteer support.
