ACL 2014

We seek a limited number of student volunteers for the 2014 Annual Meeting of the Association for Computational Linguistics. In exchange for one full day's work, student volunteers receive free registration to the main conference (although not to the tutorials and workshops). The work will be divided, probably into two half-day shifts, and the shifts will be scheduled to maximize volunteer access to the conference events. Tasks will include assisting at the registration desk, stuffing delegate packs, and providing technical assistance for conference events including tutorials, the main conference, and workshops.

Application deadline: April 28, 2014

Notification of acceptance: May 9, 2014

Student Travel Awards

A small amount of funding is also available to assist student participants both with travel to Baltimore, MD for ACL 2014, as well as with conference expenses (such as housing, local transportation to/from airport, conference registration of non-main session events, reasonable food costs, etc.)

All students are welcome to apply. The applicants must agree to participate in the ACL 2014 Student Volunteer Program. Please note that Student Travel Awards are to subsidize student authors' participation in ACL, and are not intended to cover all travel expenses.

Application deadline: April 28, 2014
