Student volunteers play a crucial role in ensuring the success of ICSE. They help with everything 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. Being a student volunteer 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 Ph.D. students from all over the world who are enthusiastic and willing to contribute to make ICSE 2016 a unique experience for all attendees.
