Call for Student Volunteers

PASC18 is pleased to announce that submissions for the Student Volunteer Program are now open.

We are looking for enthusiastic students who are interested in helping us with the administration of the event. Selected students will be granted a complimentary registration for the conference. Please note that costs related to travels to the conference location and accommodation are the students' responsibility.


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 aspects involved in 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.
