Call for Student Volunteers

PASC17 is pleased to announce that submissions for the Student Volunteers Program are now open for the upcoming conference to be held from June 26 to 28 in Lugano.

PASC17 is looking for enthusiastic students who are interested in helping us with the administration of the event. Selected students will be granted a complimentary entrance to the conference.

Benefits

Undergraduate and graduate student volunteers will have the opportunity to:

  • Attend technical talks by prominent researchers and industry leaders
  • Develop lasting peer connections
  • Gain understanding of the aspects involved in the coordination of a large event

When not on duty, student volunteers can attend program sessions, as well as lunches and coffee breaks. If there are specific sessions that a volunteer would particularly like to attend, we invite her/him to let us know, and we will do our best to accommodate the request.

To show our appreciation we invite all volunteers to participate in a closing dinner on the last day of the event.
