Call for Student Volunteers


Student volunteers play a crucial role in ensuring the success of MoDELS
conferences. Volunteering at MoDELS 2018 is an excellent opportunity for
students from around the globe to meet and exchange ideas with leading
individuals in the Model-Driven Engineering community from both industry and
research. Being engaged in the student volunteer program is also an 
way of meeting other students from all over the world.

Application Process

- Fill in one of these forms:
     * Google form: https://goo.gl/forms/FQSgi6nuSvoN9hsJ3
     * PDF: https://modelsconf2018.github.io/assets/svapplication.pdf

- Send adviser recommendation to: djamel_eddine.khelladi at jku.at

Submission (Application and Recommendation Letter)
Due Date: August 7, 2018 (AOE)
Notifications Date:  August 15, 2018

Selection Process

Student volunteers must submit both the online form and a recommendation 
from their advisor no later than August 7, AOE. Recommendation letters 
must be
directly sent to the Student Volunteers Chair by email. The recommendation
letters, in addition to supporting your application, must clearly 
mention that
your supervisor(s) is (are) aware of your expected responsibilities. In
particular, the workload we expect from you during the conference.  The 
students will be notified no later than August 15. Preference will be 
given to
students who publish at MoDELS'18 or in satellite events, but this is not
strictly required.


Being a student volunteer is an excellent opportunity to meet, interact, and
network with leading academic and industrial researchers and 
practitioners in
the area of Model-Driven Engineering. Such interactions often help shape the
research direction for many students. Being a student volunteer is also 
a great
way to meet other students from all over the world that share your 
interest for
MDE and to offset some of the costs of the conference!

This program will cover registration fees (workshops and conference 
banquet excluded), lunches, coffee breaks, receptions, a volunteer 
event in town, and a volunteer t-shirt. The program does not cover
transportation or accommodation costs. Student volunteers will need to 
rely on
their own resources for accommodation and transportation. Sources of 
these funds
might include their research supervisor, or their own university.


- Approximately 20 to 25 hours of work in total during the conference week.
   Ideally, student volunteers will be assigned to a satellite event 
and/or a
   conference session in which they have a scientific interest.
- Technical assistance to speakers and conference participants.
- Other activities that keep the MoDELS 2018 conference running 
smoothly. For
