I thought I would post this is it is relevant to CG. I applied to be a SIGGRAPH student volunteer in the early days of January. I just recently got an email stating I had been accepted to the program ( I was one of 500 out of a few thousand). I then saw I had another email saying that they had overbooked the amount of volunteers they need, and since I was in the younger age group, I had been waitlisted :(
So if anyone cannot make the event, I (and a few others) will be selected to take their place. So hopefully someone will drop!
