Here you can find information on how to participate in LA-Web via the SV Program. If you have any questions, please contact us at laweb2006 [at]

Being a Student Volunteer

Your work and engagement as SV will be essential to the success of LA-WEB  2006. As a SV you will work 16 hours on tasks such as preparing the conference participants kits, helping visitors to find sessions' locations, setting up audio and video for speakers among others.


In return for your help at the conference, all SVs will receive many benefits including free conference registration, a SV Tshirt, the opportunity to meet and collaborate with LA-Web researchers, attendees and committee members from participating regions of the world and from diverse areas involved in Web development.

Commitments and Responsibilities

SVs must commit to 16 hours of work at the conference between the 24th and 28th of October 2006, which may include pre- or post-conference duties.

You are responsible for your own housing, travel to and from Cholula, Puebla, Mexico, and the meals that are not provided.


Volunteers must be undergraduate, fulltime M.Sc. or Ph.D. students during the 2006 academic year. All students, regardless of discipline or area of interest, are encouraged to apply. No prior experience is required.We are looking for enthusiastic, intelligent, reliable people.

How to Apply

We are now accepting applications by email laweb2006 [at] Applications will be accepted until September 8th and should include the following:

 Contact Information (Address, Country, Email, Day Phone, E-mail)

 Experience (Prior Volunteer Activities)

 Languages Spoken

 Affiliation (School, Department, Status Full-time/Part-Time)

By the way, if you are accepted, a valid, dated student identification card or a letter from your university or school will be required when registering at the conference.

Historically, more students apply than can be accepted, so early application is encouraged. However, applicants on the waiting list are often accepted,  so do not be discouraged if you are applying close to or after the preliminary deadline.

Selection Process

The volunteers initially selected will be notified by September 15th, 2006 so they can begin making any necessary arrangements. The waiting list consists of both the applications received by September 8th, 2006 but not initially selected and the ones received after this date.
