ICFP 2017
Sun 3 - Sat 9 September 2017 Oxford, United Kingdom

Sign up to be a Student Volunteer and help us make ICFP 2017 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.

Job assignments for student volunteers include assisting with technical sessions, workshops, tutorials and panels, helping the registration desk, operating the information desk, helping with traffic flow, and general assistance to keep the conferences running smoothly.

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 (registration and information desks, assistance during talk sessions, etc.).

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.

To apply, please fill this form

The second round application has been held for whom cannot apply the first round application for several reasons. The deadline is July 18th, 2017. This is the final call; don’t miss it! The application deadline is June 24th, 2017. Applications after this date may be considered pending availability.

The notifications of acceptance will be sent by the end of July at once for the both, though the applicants of the first round are prior to others in the selection.
