Call for Student Volunteers

Student volunteers play a crucial role in ensuring the success of the 35th IEEE/ACM International Conference on Automated Software Engineering (ASE 2020). They help with many things from registration to local support. 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 Software Engineering. Being a student volunteer is also a great way to meet other students from all over the world that are also interested in Software Engineering and to cover some of the costs of attending the conference!

This exclusive experience is available to both undergraduate and graduate students from all over the world who are enthusiastic and willing to contribute to make ASE 2020 a unique experience for all attendees.

Would you like to be part of the ASE 2020- organization? Don’t miss your chance! Sign up and help us!
