AABS 2018 Conference at Stanford University: Volunteer Sign-Up Form

Stanford University will hold a major Baltic conference in 2018 in order to celebrate two important milestones – the 100th anniversary of independence for Estonia, Latvia, and Lithuania and the 50th anniversary of the founding of the Association for the Advancement of Baltic Studies (AABS). The conference aims to bring together a few hundred scholars interested in Baltic studies from all over the world and foster collaboration between Baltic and Stanford researchers. The three-day program, to be held on the Stanford campus June 1-3, 2018, will feature an academic portion featuring dozens of panels, roundtable discussions, and workshops. Additional events, such as keynote talks by leading Baltic scholars, film screenings, exhibit openings and tours of Stanford’s Baltic collections are offered. The preliminary conference program can be found on the conference website: http://aabs2018.stanford.edu/overview

The conference organizers are looking for volunteers who are willing to help out with one or more of the following areas:
1. Help with registering/signing in attendees at the registration desk. The registration desk is open from 8:00 am-6:00pm every day of the conference (June 1, 2, 3). The registration desk is located in the Frances C. Arrillaga Alumni Center (326 Galvez St, Stanford), which is where a large portion of the conference events are held. A member of Stanford Conferences team, Brigid Neff, is in charge of the registration task activities and can provide on-site assistance to volunteers. Your tasks would include:
* Handing badges and other conference materials to participants who have registered for the conference;
* Providing instructions to all conference attendees regarding finding conference venues and on-campus locations. We will provide you with maps

* Helping conference attendees with any additional questions that may arise.
2. Help with providing logistical instructions and serving as an on-site contact for all conference attendees at other conference venues (History Corner-Building 200, Pigott Hall-Building 260, Cecil H. Green Library). See below for specific dates/times for these locations. Your tasks would include:

Registration for the general public begins on April 1. The academic portion of the conference is free for anyone but catered events require a paid ticket:
