Sign up to be a Student Volunteer and help us make POPL 2020 a unique experience for all attendants!

POPL 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.

The Student Volunteer Program helps more students attend the POPL conference by covering conference fees, including access to the banquet (but not travel or lodging expenses) in exchange for a fixed number of work hours (usually ~15) helping with the conference organization.


Applicants can be undergraduate, Master’s, Ph.D. full- or part-time students, of computer science or related fields, with or without previous experience as volunteers.


Applicants must be available for at least four (4) full days between the 18th and 25th of January 2020, and will be expected to provide about 15 hours of volunteering work in that time.


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. Please note that Student Volunteers are responsible for their own travel and accommodation arrangements. However, Student Volunteers can apply for extra funding from SIGPLAN PAC funding when eligible.
