Student volunteers

In order to smoothly run the conference and associated workshops and tutorials, we need student volunteers to help out on the practical aspect of the organization.

The student volunteer program is a chance for students from around the world to participate in the conferences whilst assisting us in preparing and running the events. In return, volunteers are granted free registration to the conference.

The Student Volunteer registration covers:

  • Access to all workshops and the main conference,
  • Daily lunches and coffee breaks,
  • Access to all social events, including the banquet.

As a POPL’17 Student Volunteer, you will interact closely with researchers, academics and practitioners from various disciplines and meet other students from around the world.

Job assignments for student volunteers include but are not restricted to: assisting with technical sessions, workshops, tutorials and panels, checking badges at doors, operating the information desk, providing information about the conference to attendees, helping with traffic flow, and general assistance to keep the conferences running smoothly.
