sosconf 2019 Call for Volunteers

Are you a student who loves open source? Join us today at the very first global Students Open Source Conference!

Student Open Source Conference (sosconf) is the very first student-held, student-centered international conference focusing on open source. It will be a great opportunity for students around the world to gather, connect and learn from each other. For companies and organizations, it will be a chance to show their support for open source and to meet an extremely diverse group of students. This year, the conference will be held at University of Southern California in Los Angeles on September 1, with a welcome banquet on the previous evening. Students of any education levels around the world are welcome to participate as audience, volunteers or speakers, with an opportunity to obtain travel reimbursement.

The conference is organized by an international community of students, who have also contributed to events such as GNOME.Asia, FOSSASIA, PyCon and IBM Developer Day. If you are also a student like us, we cordially invite you to join the movement and show the world what we can accomplish.

Just like all open source projects, sosconf 2019 would only be possible because of its contributors. Join this team of students from different countries and cultures, and create the first global Students Open Source Conference together! Volunteers can be either local or remote.

  • A volunteer certificate
