ICFP 2019
Sun 18 - Fri 23 August 2019 Berlin, Germany

Sign up to be a Student Volunteer and help us make ICFP 2019 a unique experience for all attendants!

ICFP 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 ICFP 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 from 10 to 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.


Applicants must be available for at least four (4) full days between the 17th and 23rd of August, and will be expected to provide up to 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.

You can send questions about student volunteering to icfp-sv@googlegroups.com.
