Call for Student Volunteers

IEEE Quantum Week 2024 kindly invites graduate students with interests in the topics of the IEEE International Conference on Quantum Computing and Engineering (QCE24) to apply for two full days of volunteering for QCE24 in exchange for a highly discounted QCE24 full registration.

QCE24 will be held as an in-person event with virtual participation in Montréal, Québec, Canada at the Palais des congrès.  As a hybrid event, we are broadcasting the sessions to virtual participants and recording the sessions for QCE On-Demand after the main event ends on September 20.

IEEE Quantum Week 2024 will feature 14-15 parallel program tracks per day over six days — Sun-Fri, Sep 15-20, 2024. QCE24 needs approximately 60 student volunteers to run the 90+ hybrid tracks and the conference (e.g., registration desk, exhibits & posters hall) effectively. For volunteering for two full days (9:30-17:15) at QCE24, a student volunteer will receive a highly discounted QCE24 full registration.

To apply as a student volunteer, please fill out the Student Volunteer Application Signup Form and submit the form via the QCE24 EasyChair Submission Site. To submit the form, you must create an EasyChair Account if you don’t already have one. Of course, you can also use this account for your paper submission for QCE24.

Please note: Student volunteers must commit to travel to Montréal, Québec, Canada, to participate in-person at IEEE Quantum Week 2024. There are no remote volunteer opportunities. Please note travel to Montréal, Québec, Canada and accommodation in Montréal are not included in this offer.
