EMBC'11 has a very special volunteering opportunity for graduate students in Boston (i.e. help with registration, answer questions, or mentor high school students). In exchange for one day of volunteering, the student will get access to the entire conference for free.
They have an absolutely awesome lineup of keynote speakers and events this year and would love to get more graduate students attending who otherwise might not be able to come. Check out http://embc2011.embs.org.
