Guimaro Hugo APECS Online Conference 2020 March2020The 6th APECS International Online Conference will take place on 19-20th May 2020 and, once again, it's the time of the year that we ask for your support as volunteers! (Sign up here!)

Specifically, we need your help to act as Presentation Judges and Session Coordinators during the conference. No prior experience is required! We provide training for both roles (see below for more information). These are excellent opportunities to develop professional skills, support the APECS community, and gain experience that will boost your C.V.!

To volunteer, you must be able to attend at least one entire session. You are welcome to volunteer for more than one session. Attendees of the Online Conference are welcome to volunteer*. Volunteering will take approximately 4 hours of your time (~2-3 hours to attend a session, plus some training time).

To volunteer, please complete this google form by 5 May 2020 and we will contact you with more information.

The Conference includes five sessions, spread across time zones, with about 50 presentations total.

  • Session 1: 0800-1045 GMT
  • Session 2: 1130-1405 GMT
