The Association for Interdisciplinary Studies (AIS) is holding its 38th annual international conference at the University of Ottawa on October 27-29, 2016. This year’s theme is Interdisciplinary Approaches to Health, Wellness and Sustainable Communities. Presentations topics will include community health, indigenous research, gamification of higher education, interprofessional collaboration and many others.
We are seeking graduate student volunteers to help us host the conference. Students from all uOttawa faculties are welcome to volunteer, however priority will be given to students engaged in education or interdisciplinary research.This will be a unique opportunity to network with interdisciplinary professors, administrators, graduate students and other stakeholders from across the disciplines and around the world.
The conference coincides with UOttawa’s Fall reading week and includes free breakfast and lunch on most days. Volunteers will provide assistance before, during and immediately after the conference. Tasks may include guiding attendees, chairing presentations, working the registration desk, and general room/display set up.
Conference registration fees will be waived for graduate students who volunteer a minimum of 5 hours (minimum of 9 hours for undergraduate students)[you can attend all events and presentations, including the pre-conference workshops for free!]. All volunteers will receive an official commendation letter from UOttawa professors who are co-chairing the conference.
