Student volunteers help with a variety of tasks at the conference, such as preparations for the exhibitions, registration/ticketing, photography and technical support. Being a student volunteer is a unique experience that allows to:
Collectively produce an inspiring conference and learn from each other
Get insights into the latest design and research in the area of participatory design.
access to people from academia and beyond that might be relevant to your own work, those behind inspiring papers, books, and projects
conference fee waiver (transportation and accommodation are your responsibility).
Full time students at any level (BA, MA and PhD) are welcome to apply, old and new friends with or without prior experience in PDC.
