Student Volunteer Program
In order to run the conference and associated workshops and tutorials smoothly, we need student volunteers to help out on the practical aspects 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 grant covers:
- Access to all workshops, tutorials and the main conference,
- Daily lunches and coffee breaks,
- Access to all social events, including the banquet.
Note that the travel expenses are not covered by the Student Volunteer grant.
As a ‹Programming› 2018 Student Volunteer, you will interact closely with researchers, academics and practitioners from various disciplines and meet other students from around the world. You will also be able to attend almost all talks.
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.
To apply for a Student Volunteer grant, please fill in the application form.
Deadline for applications: Feb 25, 2018 AOE.
The successful applications will be notified March 11th, 2018.
The selected students are indebted to participate.
Student Research Competition
The ACM Student Research Competition (SRC), sponsored by Microsoft Research, offers a unique forum for ACM student members at the undergraduate and graduate levels to present their original research before a panel of judges and conference attendees. The SRC gives visibility to up-and-coming young researchers, and offers them an opportunity to discuss their research with experts in their field, get feedback, and to help sharpen communication and networking skills. Moreover, ACM’s SRC program covers expenses up to $500 for all students invited to an SRC. Please see the SRC page for more information.
