Dear ECS student members,

For the upcoming ECS conference in the beautiful area of La Spezia, Italy, that will take place from April 8th-10th 2018, Cristian Passarello and myself are looking for 15 student volunteers from outside Italy and 15 from Italy.

As a student volunteer you will help with all sorts of things (registration desk, technical support etc) during the conference, but you will also have more than enough time to attend or present talks, posters and other conference activities. In return you will get your conference registration for free, an awesome experience with the other student volunteers and off course a volunteer T-shirt! There will also be a student party on one of the conference nights!

So do you want to be a volunteer at the next ECS conference in Italy? Apply now! Send an email to , and include the following:

You have to be an ECS member (2018) and a current student or graduated in the last 12 months, to become a student volunteer! So we will be looking for about 15 students from Italy and 15 from other European countries. About 25 new volunteers and 5 with previous ECS volunteering experience will be selected (based on experience and first-come-first-serve basis).

You will be notified about your application in early January. If we get more applicants than needed we will make a reserves list and work from there if spots become available.

For more information about the conference go to: 32nd-annual-conference-la-spezia-italy

Hope to see you all in Italy!
