ICSE 2015


The 37th International Conference on Software Engineering

Call for 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.
