SciX is taking place IN PERSON in Providence, RI. There is no option to participate remotely. In early October, you will be able to purchase access to the SciX on-demand library at a discounted rate. Attendees in Providence have access to the on-demand library included in their registration rate.


Students are invited to volunteer at SciX for a minimum of four hours to receive a complimentary conference registration.

Volunteering is a first-come, first-served opportunity. If you are interested in volunteering at SciX 2021, please click the link below and provide your contact information as soon as possible, but no later than August 20, 2021. All accepted volunteers will be contacted by August 31 with instructions.  Please do not register until you hear from us with further instructions and your comp registration code. You may not find out your volunteer status until after the August 1 registration rate increase, so we will provide you with a code to register at the early bird rate if you are not chosen.

Students who sign up and register as volunteers and do not appear for their volunteer shift will be billed for the cost of a student registration, and will not be able to register for future SciX meetings until the outstanding payment is made.

Below is a list of tasks that volunteers may be asked to assist with. Additional assistance may be required in areas not listed here.

  • Move boxes that weigh up to 25 lbs.
  • Stuff conference bags prior to the meeting.
  • Room monitor / head counts.
  • Assist at registration.
  • Sign placement and moving.
  • Move materials from room to room.
  • Assist with reception and room set ups.
  • Ticket collection at events/receptions.
  • Affix poster board numbers
  • Staff SciX booth in exhibit hall

As an added bonus, anyone who signs up for the Saturday bag stuffing time-slot (before the meeting) gets lunch on us!
