Hasso-Plattner-Institut Potsdam, Germany, March 25–30, 2012

Student Volunteer Program

The Student Volunteer program is a great opportunity for students interested in topics of advanced modularity and Aspect-Oriented Software Development (AOSD) to stay tuned on the cutting edge scientific and technical advances in this area. This is also an opportunity for the interested grad and undergrad students to engage with their peers: both students and senior researchers and practitioners. As ever, the AOSD 2012 Student Volunteer program will strive to provide an active and interactive environment for the students to benefit from the research program of the conference, as well as to develop their professional network and enjoy the social events.

Special Call for Students From European Universities

  • The AOSD 2012 Student Volunteer program will provide 10 dedicated spots for graduate students from European universities
  • The applications will be prioritized based on the relevance of the student work to AOSD, the potential extension of the AOSD community via integration of related work from new/underrepresented research groups, and the circumstances of individual students.

Important Dates

  • Application deadline: Friday, January 6th, 2012
  • Notification: Sunday, January 15th, 2012


The student volunteers will receive:

  • Free student registration for the conference.
  • Free participation in all social events including one banquet ticket.
  • Excellent networking opportunities: both working as a team with other volunteers, and interacting with other conference participants.
  • The program chairs will strive to (as much as possible) ensure that the volunteers are assigned to the tutorials, workshops, demonstrations or other events of their interest.
  • When not on duty, volunteers will have free admission to all conference events, provided space is available.

The student volunteers will provide

  • 15–20 hours of work on conference support tasks throughout the duration of the conference, including:
  • Technical assistance for the main conference sessions, workshops, tutorials, demonstrations, or evening events.
  • Help at conference bag packing and signposting.
  • Help at the registration desk.
  • Help in arranging, rearranging and disassembling conference facilities.
  • Technical assistance to speakers and conference participants.

The applicants for student volunteer positions must be:

  • Enrolled as a full-time student during the 2011–2012 academic year.
  • Willing to be friendly (no natural outgoing personality required, just a strong desire to do a good job).
  • Proficient in English.
  • Proficiency in other languages is an advantage.
