International Conference on Functional Programming (ICFP) 2019 – Call for Student Volunteers

ICFP’19 — FIRST CALL FOR STUDENT VOLUNTEERS

ICFP provides a forum for researchers and developers to hear about the latest work on the design, implementations, principles, and uses of functional programming. The conference covers the entire spectrum of work, from practice to theory, including its peripheries. In order to smoothly run the conference, associated workshops, and tutorials, we need student volunteers to help out on the practical aspect of the organization. All the events associated with ICFP’19 will take place from Sun 18 – Fr 23 August 2019 in Berlin, Germany.

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 conferences, tutorials, workshops, and panel, and a ticket for the banquet.

As an ICFP 2019 Student Volunteer, you will interact closely with researchers, academics and practitioners from various disciplines and meet other students from around the world.

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, assisting with accessibility accommodations, and general assistance to keep the conferences running smoothly.

Please note that Student Volunteers are responsible for their own travel and accommodation arrangements. However, Student Volunteers are compensated for the following things.

  • A complimentary conference registration, offering access to all open sessions (i.e., parallel paper presentations, demonstrations, and workshops) and conference proceedings.
  • Free lunches and refreshments during breaks.
  • Student volunteer garments.
  • Free admission to all social events.

Furthermore, Student Volunteers can apply for extra funding from SIGPLAN PAC funding when eligible.
