Student Volunteers

We encourage undergraduate and graduate students to apply as volunteers to help with the administration of the conference. In exchange for volunteering, you will receive complimentary conference registration, housing (for out-of-town volunteers), and most meals.

As a student volunteer, you will have an opportunity to learn about and discuss the latest high performance computing and networking technologies, meet leading researchers from around the world, all while contributing to the success of SC12. Limited support for transportation expenses (such as airfare) are available for international students and students from groups that traditionally have been underrepresented in HPC (African Americans, Hispanics, Native Americans, Alaska Natives, Native Hawaiians, Pacific Islanders, the physically challenge, and women).

Student volunteers are expected to be available to work 4-5 hours per day during the week of the conference. We require no special skills or experience for most volunteer positions, but some familiarity with computing platforms, audio/visual equipment or office equipment is helpful.

Student Volunteer applications open April 1, 2012 and will close July 31, 2012.  Applications will be available at the SC12 Submissions site:
