The biggest need for volunteers are session coordinators:
- Assisting section chairs in the presentation rooms to keep the papers/presentations on schedule and helping attendees who may need asistance -- generally fighting entropy and keeping things running smoothly.
- Looking at the schedule as it exists, I would anticipate needing at least 28 (possibly up to 56) session coordinators -- I have 5 definite and 2 possible coordinators as of now.
- Attached is the list of duties for session coordinators (also includes duties of the section chairs, which sometimes are passed on to the coordinators)
The second most important need is for people to assist at the registration booth, but we don't need as many of them (a maximum of two volunteers at peak registration times, in addition to the two registrars who I believe will be at the desk, though I should coordinate with them).
