The SPLASH Student Volunteers program presents an opportunity for students worldwide to associate with some of the leading personalities in industry and research in the following areas: programming languages, object-oriented technology, and software development. Student volunteers get the opportunity to work with the SPLASH organizing committees and other students around the world and be a part of this premier event.
As a student volunteer, you will aid in the smooth running of the conference events by performing several crucial tasks such as: assisting with registration, providing information about the conference to attendees, assisting session organizers, monitoring sessions, managing videos from participants, maintaining Slack channels for the event, etc.
Register to be a SPLASH 2022 student volunteer. This year, SPLASH will take place both in person in Auckland, New Zealand, and virtually. As such, SPLASH 2022 is pleased to offer opportunities for student volunteers to contribute to, and participate either in person or virtually.
