ICFP 2023
Mon 4 - Sat 9 September 2023 Seattle, Washington, United States

The soft deadline for volunteer application has passed, but we will continue to accept applications. Those who apply before the soft deadline will receive full consideration.

Sign up to be a Volunteer and help us make ICFP 2023 a unique experience for all attendants!

ICFP 2023 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 people from around the world to participate in the conferences whilst assisting us in preparing and running the event.

The Volunteer Program helps more people attend the ICFP 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.

How to apply

Please apply using this form. The deadline is June 30th


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 four (4) full days between September 4th and September 9th, 2023, and will be expected to provide a total of 12-15 hours of volunteering work in that time.

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.
