Call for student volunteers

Student volunteers play a crucial role in ensuring the success of ESEC/FSE. 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 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 in Software Engineering and to reduce some of the costs of the conference.

This exclusive experience is available to undergraduate and graduate students from any country who are enthusiastic and willing to contribute to making ESEC/FSE 2023 a unique experience for all attendees.

To apply, please fill out the following form by no later than September 3rd (applications submitted after this date will not be considered), 2023:
