When are accomodations covered? Accomodations are covered from Sunday, August 24th to Thursday, August 28th, inclusive. Students will be hosted at Stayokay

Which costs are not covered? Travel costs and accomodations during Camp Smalltalk (August 23th and 24th, preceeding the conference) (unless it's necessary; contact us).

To sign up: Contact with the following information: First name, last name, university, an email address where you can always be reached, your university, and optionally, any special information you think is important/relevant. Your mail should be tagged as follow: [ESUG 2008 Student]

Past duties have involved handling registration as people arrive at the conference, staffing coffee machines, collecting presentation slides for ESUG right after the presentation is given, being present at an information desk to answer questions, and generally being helpful. Student volunteering makes the conference better, take a fairly small amount of time and doesn't significantly interfere with enjoying and learning from the conference.
