They are also the heroes/heroines that help resolve any unexpected situations. Their specific duties include: bag stuffing, registration desk, AV assistance, poster and demo setup, badge checking, break monitoring, social media assistance and etc. SVs usually get to attend most of the sessions, even when volunteering.
