AppSecEU 2016 Volunteer Registration

Welcome to the AppSec EU volunteer registration. Once you have signed-up to help us, we'll get in touch so you can pick your prefered shifts. Please show-up at least thirty minutes early for your first shift, so we have time to go over your responsibilities and duties, before you take your post. In order to qualify for a badge, you must sign-up for at least 8 hrs of duty (you could choose to do a 4+4hrs). If you're a volunteer junkie, you're more than welcome to sign-up for more, but the minimum is 8. Shifts are first-come, first served and are not negotiable, but are swappable with another volunteer, if you make the arrangements with them and inform us ahead of time. We have shifts on Sunday, Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday. We're mostly interested in volunteers that help us during the conference (Thursday/Friday) but we also need Proctors during the training sessions and Runner on Sunday.

Here are brief descriptions of the job we need filled:

Registration/Late Registration/Information:
Assist with running conference registration and information desk on site. Registration is ideal for people who are comfortable dealing with large numbers of people under mildly stressful circumstances, who
communicate well, and are familiar with office functions and/or registration systems. The position is likely to be very busy in the
mornings.

Speaker Liaisons:
Help speakers get to and from their assigned areas, and making sure that they have the resources that they need to do their tasks. Will also interface with the facilities team if any facilities issues arise and need to be remedied. Being a speaker liaison is ideal for people who are capable of a high level of professionalism, can communicate well, can stick to a schedule,and don't mind odd jobs. Liaisons will be expected to introduce speakers. Liaisons will be tied to a specific track. This means that they will be able to see select portions of that track while "on the job," but will be locked into a set schedule that will require them to miss certain parts of the conference. Liaisons may also get some ability to interact with speakers, but this is not guaranteed.

Speaker Liaison - Prep room monitor:
Coordinate logistics for speakers when they are on-site. This position will involve pre-event planning as
well as on-site coordination. This volunteer will "own" the speaker prep room and coordinate set up of the room and any other on-
site needs for speakers.

Room Proctor:
Assist with keynote and track room logistics - may involve tasks such as scanning badges as attendees enter/leave room, notifying speaker of time left in talk, and other facilities needs as they arise. Room Proctors will be tied to a specific track. This means that they will be able to see select portions of that track while "on the job," but will be locked into a set schedule that will require them to miss certain parts of the conference.

Runner:
Help out with various on-site tasks throughout the conference. This position is ideal for people who are comfortable thinking quickly and moving around to help out with tasks or situations as they arise.

Merchandise store:
The operator will hold the official OWASP merchandise stand during the conference.

Dinner Tickets:
Process the tickets of those delegates that have chosen the Conference Dinner option, as they arrive for the meal.

Dinner Direction:
Direct guests to the Conference Dinner.


When you arrive, please report to the Registration Desk and let them know that you're a volunteer. When you arrive, we will have paperwork for you to fill out, standard confidentiality forms that we need to have on-file before you can take your shift. For those that choose an afternoon shift, if at all possible please arrive early in the AM, so that we can get you all signed-up and sign-in and you can enjoy the conference for a few hours, before your shift.

Thank you for your interest in volunteering for AppSec EU. Conferences like this are run due to the hard work of volunteers like you. We couldn't do this without you.

If you have specific questions that need to be addressed, please email owasp-italy@owasp.org and she will reply as soon as she can.
