Update: The student volunteer positions
are full. Thanks for your help.
PLoP is only able to run as smoothly as
it does with the help of lots of people. We would be appreciated
if you can help us in some tasks listed below. Some tasks
can be performed remotely while some requires local presence.
Please contact Weerasak
Witthawaskul if you would like to volunteer.
P.S. If you are a student, one of the
benefits as a student volunteer is that you are waived for
conference fee which includes facility use, lunch, coffee
break. If you are a non-local student, you will pay for
accommodation and other expenses. Past off-campus volunteers
either stayed at the hotel or with their local friends.
