We are pleased to announce that there is a limited amount of funding available to partially support volunteer students travel to HRI09. Students receiving support will be expected to volunteer time to help with on-site registration and with general duties, if needed, from 10 March (early on-site registration, tutorials and workshops) to 13 March, 2009. Being a Student Volunteer is a great way to enter the HRI research community, meet other students in your field, and attend one of most important conferences in HRI. We are looking to include students with diverse backgrounds in HRI and from all parts of the world.
To request funding, please send the following information to firstname.lastname@example.org
- Your Name,
- Your Affiliation (name and address of college/university),
- Your Contact Information (email address and telephone number(s)).
