POPL is a leading forum for the discussion of all aspects of programming languages and programming systems, from theoretical to experimental aspect. In order to smoothly run the conference and associated workshops and tutorials, we need student volunteers to help out on the practical aspect of the organization. All the events associated with POPL’18 will take place from Mon 8 to Sat 13 January 2018 in Los Angeles, California, USA.

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 a POPL 2018 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, and general assistance to keep the conferences running smoothly.
