student/volunteer application period
closed on April 5th. We are in the
process of selecting awardees and
notifying applicants of their status.
JCDL 2004 is offering a limited
number of student volunteer work/study
awards. In an effort to encourage
promising students involved in digital
library research we will be waiving
conference fees and providing other
benefits to students who are willing
to help with conference activities.
This is a great opportunity to be
a part of the cutting edge in the
digital library research from both
the ACM and IEEE communities. There
are plenty of opportunities to interact
with the best and most prominent
people in the field!
Volunteer awardees will receive
complimentary conference registration,
meals and breaks, plus admission
to the opening reception, regular
conference sessions (excluding tutorial
and workshop sessions), the poster
and demo session, and the conference
banquet scheduled for Wednesday
night at Old Tucson Studios. Student
volunteers also get a copy of the
conference proceedings. Please note
that travel and lodging expenses
will be the responsibility of the
Student volunteers will work approximately
20 hours during the conference.
Duties will include answering questions
from conference attendees, monitoring
entrance to sessions, helping with
technology facilities (email room
etc.), assisting with registration,
and running miscellaneous errands.
