Sign up to be a Student Volunteer and help us make ICFP 2018 a unique experience for all attendants!

ICFP is pleased to offer a number of opportunities for student volunteers, who are vital to the efficient operation and continued success of the conference each year. 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 event.

The Student Volunteer Program helps more students attend the ICFP conference by covering conference fees (but not travel or lodging expenses) in exchange for a fixed number of work hours (usually from 8 to 12) helping with the conference organization.

Job assignments for student volunteers include 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, assisting with accessibility accommodations, and general assistance to keep the conferences running smoothly.

The Student Volunteer registration covers:

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