"It was a great experience to be part of the student volunteers team. Getting free
registration and being able to attend tutorials and other events is great, but the most
important thing is that you feel part of the organization of that event."
Breno Miranda, ICSE 2014 SV

Student Volunteers

Student volunteers play a crucial role in ensuring the success of ICSE. They are the people that help everyone from registration to local support. Being a student volunteer is an excellent opportunity to meet, interact and network with leading academic and industrial researchers and practitioners in the area of software engineering. Such interactions often help shape the research direction for many students. This is also a great way to meet other students from all over the world that share your interest for software engineering and to offset some of the costs of the conference!

This exclusive experience is available to undergraduate, graduate, and PhD students from all over the world who are enthusiastic and willing to contribute to make ICSE 2015 a unique experience for all attendees.
