POPL 2021
Sun 17 - Fri 22 January 2021 Online

Sign up to be a Student Volunteer and help us make POPL 2021 a unique experience for all attendants!

POPL 2021 is pleased to offer a number of opportunities for student volunteers, who are vital to the efficient operation and continued success of the conference each year. The student volunteer program is a chance for students from around the world to participate in the conferences whilst assisting us in preparing and running the event.

Update on Student Volunteering in relation to COVID-19

Even though the conference will be held online, we will still need student volunteers to help with the conference organization. In exchange for a fixed number of work hours (usually from 12 to 15) helping with the conference organization, you will be able to closely interact with researchers, mentors, and other students at POPL 2021. You will also be able to boast that you volunteered in the first-ever virtual POPL!


Applicants can be undergraduate, Master’s, Ph.D. full- or part-time students, of computer science or related fields.


Applicants must be available for at least four (4) full days between January 17th and January 22nd, 2021, and will be expected to provide up to 12-15 hours of volunteering work in that time.

About Volunteering

The skills, talents, and dedication of the Student Volunteers contribute to the overall quality of the Conference. The Student Volunteer role this year will mainly involve preparing for the conference by reviewing pre-recorded videos from speakers, managing online Q&A sessions and supporting active communication in our online environment.

There are two rounds of calls:

  • deadline for first-round: Nov 30th, 2020 AOE (notification: Dec 04th)

  • deadline for the second round: Dec 16th, 2020 (notification: Dec 19th) - application form
