For students interested in the work of some of the smaller associations (IACS, IAVCEI for example) this means that they will be free to attend whatever sessions they like of that particular association, but will be rostered to particular activities relevant to associations distant from their core interest.  In this way the whole conference time will be used, which is why volunteers are asked to be there the whole time.
