Call for Student Volunteers

Graduate and research students working in the area of communications and networking are invited to serve as Student Volunteers at IEEE GLOBECOM 2017 which will take place from 4-8 December 2017 at Marina Bay Sands, Singapore.

The event is expected to attract about 1,500 delegates from around the world from the R&D, academia, industry and government domains related to communications and networking fields.

The benefits of participating are:

  • meet and interact with top professors, researchers, CTOs and engineers in the communications and networking field
  • attend state of the art research presentations, workshops and panel discussions (only when you are not on duty; note that your duty obligations must come first
  • be part of a world class international professional technical event happening in Singapore

Your duties will mainly revolve around working with the conference local arrangements committee to ensure that all conference events take place smoothly and on time, e.g. ensuring AV equipment are functioning properly, registering and assisting delegates, speakers and exhibitors, ushering delegates at social events, setting up, tearing down and storing furniture or signs when necessary etc. Preparations for the conference, e.g. packing bags for delegates, will start a few days before the conference.

Each student volunteer will be given 2 IEEE GLOBECOM 2017 collared t-shirts. Complimentary conference registration, meal and transport allowances will be provided on the days of your duty. You can also have refreshments or tea breaks (please let all the fee-paying delegates start first).

You are expected to be punctual and courteous at all times to conference delegates and carry out your assigned duties professionally.

Please seek the consent of your advisor/supervisor first before signing up at

We will contact you to attend a briefing nearer the date of the event.
