About the Venue
Technical and Administrative volunteers
All major conferences rely on a small army of technical and administrative volunteers to help things run smoothly, and Hypertext'03 is no exception.
Individuals are invited to join the team that works behind the scenes to make
sure equipment functions as expected, assist delegates with their itineraries,
process registrations, and answer queries as and when they arise.
When selecting volunteers, the Hypertext conferences usually give preference to
full-time students. We will need a letter from your supervisor confirming your
status as a full-time student.
As a volunteer, you will be assigned specific duties for various sessions
between the first day of the conference on the 26th August, and the final day
on August 30th. In return for this commitment you will receive
A conference pack including proceedings
Unlimited access to all conference sessions between August 27th and 29th
(provided you are not 'on-call')
Free access to the Civic reception.
All volunteers must pay for their own travel costs both to and from the
conference venue, as well as their own accommodation.
Furthermore, we regret that due to the per-person cost
of the Conference Dinner, volunteers wishing to attend this event will be
required to purchase a ticket from the registration desk upon arrival.
If you are interested in joining the HT'03 team then please apply by email
giving your name, university/affiliation, and a concise statement of your
applicable abilities. Please tell us if you have particular experience with
technical assistance (A/V equipment, connectivity, UNIX/MS support),
or if you wish to assist with administrative tasks (such as
registration, delegate enquiries, session monitoring). Please email
