ISSTA 2020
Sat 18 - Wed 22 July 2020

Student volunteers play a crucial role in ensuring the success of ISSTA. They help with everything from registration to local support. Being a student volunteer is an excellent opportunity to meet, interact, and network with leading academics, industrial researchers, and practitioners in the areas of testing and program analysis. 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 in testing and program analysis.
