Print Friendly, PDF & Email

Applications are now being accepted for the Student Volunteers program at the SC17 conference to be held Nov. 12-17 in Denver. Both undergraduate and graduate students are encouraged to apply.

Being a Student Volunteer can be transformative, from helping to find internships to deciding to pursue graduate school. Read about how Ather Sharif’s Student Volunteer experience inspired him to enroll in a Ph.D. program.

Students will be required to work a minimum number of hours during the conference, giving them time to engage in important education and career-advancing activities such as tutorials, technical talks, panels, poster sessions and workshops. Student Volunteers help with the administration of the conference and have the opportunity to participate in student-oriented activities, including professional development workshops, technical talks by famous researchers and industry leaders, exploring the exhibits and developing lasting peer connections.

The Student Volunteers program will accept a large number of students, both domestic and international, with the goal of transitioning students into the main conference by way of the Technical Program, Doctoral Showcase and Early Career professional development sessions.

The deadline to apply is June 15.

Applications must be submitted online. For questions regarding the program, please email
