Student Volunteer Program

The student volunteer organization is critical in making NIME 2012 a wonderful and successful experience. At the same time we hope the volunteer program offers a great opportunity to see how such a unique conference is realized and we are very much looking forward to have students join us!

We need friendly enthusiastic volunteers to help us out.
