Funds are available to provide financial support to a limited number of student volunteers who would like to attend COLT 2010. Students accepted as volunteers will have their registration fees waived for the conference. In exchange, students will be required to assist with the organization of the conference.
The volunteer commitment will be 8-12 hours and may involve assembling registration packets, checking in attendees, assisting with technical sessions, accompanying shuttles from the main hotels to the conference venue, accompanying busses to the banquet, etc. Volunteers will be provided with details of their assigned duties shortly after notification of acceptance.
Volunteer positions will be assigned on a competitive basis. All undergraduate, graduate, and post-doctoral students with research expertise in the area of machine learning are eligible. However priority will be given to local students, and authors of papers accepted or submitted to the conference. The exact amount of accepted volunteers will depend on the number of applicants and available funds.
Volunteers will not be provided with financial support for travelling or accommodations.
Applicants for volunteer positions should delay registration until they are notified regarding the status of their application.
