Dear all,

We are pleased to announce that there is funding available to  
partially support Student Volunteers' travel to HRI 2010.  Students  
receiving support will be expected to volunteer time to help with on- 
site registration and with general duties, as needed, from 1 March  
(early on-site registration, tutorials and workshops) to 5 March,  
2010. Being a Student Volunteer is a great way to enter the HRI  
research community, meet other students in your field, and attend one  
of most important conferences in HRI. We are looking to include  
students with diverse backgrounds in HRI and from all parts of the  
world.

To request funding, please send the following information to hri.studentvolunteer at gmail.com

(1) Provide:

1. Your Name,
2. Your Affiliation (name and address of college/university),
3. Your Contact Information (email address and telephone number(s)).

name of your faculty advisor with email and telephone contact

report at HRI10;
3. if you are receiving or requesting funding from the Young  
Researchers Workshop on 2 March 2010
4. Please include information about your area of study.

(3) A statement of your requested funding amount and a brief  
justification of your funding needs (250 words maximum).

Note that you do not have to have an accepted paper/poster at HRI10 to
