This scheme is designed to enable up to 20 students to participate in the conference. Successful applicants will be required to support the running of the conference for four hours each day, but will otherwise be free to participate in all conference sessions and activities. Note that in addition to the other rewards working at DH2010 will give successful applicants valuable experience with conference organization as well as significant opportunities for interacting with speakers and other attendees. Such interaction is often held to be among the most valuable benefits from attending academic conferences.
Applications will be welcomed from registered PhD or Masters students at higher education institutions, with no restriction on country. Young scholars in countries or institutions where 'registration' is not well defined, but who are in a PhD research path, are very likely to be eligible, and should contact the local organisers at dh2010 [at] kcl.ac.uk to discuss alternative confirmation of status - e.g. a supporting letter from the supervisor or the home institution.
