Student volunteers play a crucial role in ensuring the success of MODELS conferences. Volunteering at MODELS 2021 is an excellent opportunity for students from around the globe to meet and exchange ideas with leading individuals in the Model-Driven Engineering community from both industry and research. Being engaged in the student volunteer program is also an excellent way of meeting other students from all over the world.

Being a student volunteer is an excellent opportunity to meet, interact, and network with leading academic and industrial researchers and practitioners in the area of Model-Driven Engineering. Such interactions often help shape the research direction for many students. Being a student volunteer is also a great way to meet other students from all over the world that share your interest for MDE and to offset some of the costs of the conference!

This program will cover registration fees (workshops and conference included). Note that MODELS 2021 will be celebrated online.


Approximately 8 to 15 hours of work in total during the conference week, and presence in some pre-conference meetings and rehearsal sessions. Ideally, student volunteers will be assigned to a satellite event and/or a conference session in which they have a scientific interest.

Their job will be to provide technical assistance to speakers and conference participants and verifying that those attendees in sessions are registered.


Student volunteers:

  • should preferably be enrolled in a Ph.D. or Master program at the time of the conference.
  • must be proficient in English and have good social and communication skills.
