ECOOP on a Budget

This page has information for students. ECOOP should be an affordable and enriching experience.

First-time to ECOOP? A big conference can be daunting, especially if you don’t know anyone. The best way to break the ice is to become a Student Volunteer (SV). As an SV you’ll assist the organizers, meet the speakers, and talk to other students. Many of the researchers you will meet have been SVs themselves.

Student Volunteer Program

Student volunteers 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. In return, volunteers are granted free registration to the conference and free access to plenary sessions, tutorials, workshops, and demos. The application deadline is April 19, 2019. The second round deadline is June 10, 2019.

Doctoral Symposium

Another activity we encourage students to sign up for is the Doctoral Symposium. This is a forum for doctoral students to present their research topic and receive detailed feedback in a constructive and friendly atmosphere. PhD students at any stage of the research are welcome, although they are expected to already have an identified research topic. Participants will obtain useful guidance that will help them complete their research, prepare their thesis, and begin a research career. The application deadline is April 19, 2019. The second round deadline is May 17, 2019.

Travel for Cheap

A very limited number of travel grants are available to cover a portion (but not all) of your travel costs. The major source of funding for these is AITO Student Travel Support our combined application form (deadline: April 19, 2019 and second deadline: June 10, 2019).
