Apply to be a Volunteer and help us make SPLASH 2024 a great experience for all attendants!

SPLASH 2024 is pleased to offer a number of opportunities for volunteers, who are vital to the efficient operation and continued success of the conference each year. The volunteer program is a chance for students and Programming Languages researchers aspirants from around the world to participate in the conferences while assisting us in preparing and running the event.

The Volunteer Program helps more people attend the SPLASH conference by covering conference fees, including access to the banquet (but not travel or lodging expenses), in exchange for a fixed number of work hours (usually from 12 to 15) helping with the conference organization.


Everyone is welcome to apply. Priority is given to junior members of our community, e.g. full- or part-time students of computer science and related fields.


Applicants must be available for at least five (5) full days between October 20th and October 25th 2024, and will be expected to provide 12-15 hours of volunteering work in that time. Volunteers may also be expected to be available for some amount of pre-conference discussion and training if necessary. Volunteers from all timezones are welcome.

About Volunteering

The skills, talents, and dedication of our Volunteers contribute to the overall quality of the conference.

The Volunteer role this year will mainly involve working with the organizers to prepare for the conference by providing technical assistance to attendees, managing online Q&A and poster sessions, and supporting active communication in our online environment.

Volunteering allows you to meet other people (faculty and students) in the Programming Languages (PL) Community. With several opportunities for networking, you can share ideas about your research, find topics you are passionate about, investigate career paths, and even find your future collaborators!


  • A Complimentary Conference Registration, offering access to all open sessions (i.e., parallel paper presentations, demonstrations, and workshops) and conference proceedings.
  • Free lunches and refreshments during breaks.
  • Volunteer shirt.
  • Free admission to all social events.

Please note that volunteers are responsible for their own travel and accommodation arrangements.
