The 5th Annual IVC/SC Student Research Symposium will be held at Saddleback College on Saturday, November 5, 2016, from approximately 8:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. (exact time TBD contingent upon number of admitted applicants). We will need both general volunteers to help with check-in, etc., and volunteer moderators to attend the sessions to help keep time and manage Q&A periods for presenters. No knowledge of subject area is necessary to be a moderator. This is a great job for beginners!
