The awardees will also be required to volunteer at the conference as per instructions issued at a later date. Student volunteers are expected to perform a wide range of tasks for the Conference such as providing support to presenters, working at the Information Booths, and staffing conference activities. Student volunteers can expect to work about 10-15 hours in total during the conference, allowing plenty of time to engage in important educational and career-advancing activities such as tutorials, technical talks, panels, poster sessions, and workshops.

Travel grant awardees must also participate in the mentorship sessions that will be organized on most days of the conference.

After the conference is completed, all awardees are required to submit a 1-page summary report about the conference attendance experience within one week of the conference end date.
