Angels at the NOC Helpdesk don't need to be network wizards, they just have a basic understanding of what a network is und how it works. They don't have to setup switches and so on, so you don't need to have a working knowledge of how to do it. They try to diagnose problems reported by visitors and contact the NOC (Network Operation Center) for resolution if it's a bigger issue.

This angeltype is restricted by double-opt-in by a team supporter. Please show up at the according introduction meetings.

This group is dedicated to all Camera and Video Mixer Angels, who want to improve their own performance by reflecting the work of colleagues from an audience perspective.

As a Stream Observing Angel you examine streams for issues and keep track of sequences appearing hard to consume or violating our rule set. Therefore it is necessary to have a good insight in our rule set.

Your list of both, positive and negative remarks provides constructive feedback to the individual colleagues acting in the hall and also contribute it to the quality review during the daily meeting for the whole team. This process hopefully helps us to provide a recording suitable for the speakers and a appropriate stream for all the hackers in the galaxy who couldn't sit in the hall.

You can see yourself as one of the the stream's major contributors, who instantly reports severe issues like “there is no signal” to the VOC Helpdesk.For Video Mixer and Camera Angels, it is strongly recommended to take some stream observer shifts early as this is the individual part of your training and helps us to continuously review our routines. Feel free to discuss any questions and insights with the Stream Observing Angel next to you.

This angel type is restricted to active Video Mixer or Camera Angels, because it's part of our self evaluation and not meant as external monitoring.

This angeltype is restricted by double-opt-in by a team supporter. Please show up at the according introduction meetings.

This year, we'll focus on providing high-quality subtitle tracks for the released videos in a timely fashion. In particular, we will not provide any live subtitles for talks. Consequently, the requirements for Subtitle Angels have changed from those of the last years.

We will use a speaker-independent automated speech recognition system to provide you with a rough draft of a talk's transcript. Your task will be to listen to the talk and correct misspellings and mistranscriptions in the transcript (you will not need to provide any timing information) and to ensure that different speakers are clearly distinguished. Furthermore, since both the Herald's introduction and the Q&A session are usualy not amenable to automated speech recognition, these small parts of the talks will have to be transcribed from scratch.

As such, we no longer require that you are a fast typist (although it will certainly be helpful). You will need to bring your own laptop and a pair of headphones, and you should still be reachable via DECT (given the limited coverage this year, we won't require it, though). You will be provided with a desk sporting power and network connectivity in a quiet environment.

Feel free to contact us if any questions should remain. You can find our contact information at https://wiki.c3subtitles.de/en:contact

If yout want to join our team or contact us but can't make it to a meeting please write an e-mail to hello@c3lingo.org. For the time being, we'll approve “known faces” from the last years, newbies will be approved at congress. More details will follow.


Video Mixer Angel

This angeltype is restricted by double-opt-in by a team supporter. Please show up at the according introduction meetings.

Video Mixer Angels switch the video feed between different sources. This mixed video feed is used for both the live-stream and the recordings which are made available later. You decide which picture, respectively source, is most interesting/important at each moment.

The available sources are the cameras in the audience, as well as the display of the presenter's laptop (usually the slides). Sometimes, there also are close-up cameras on stage. Slides containing text should be shown long enough to allow both slow and fast readers to read them. As a rule of thumb, reading through the slides yourself twice usually ensures this.

You work proactively with Camera Angels through the intercom, helping them to improve their image source before switch-over. We will have some challenging talks, where decision making and intercommunication might be assisted by an external “image composition director” joining the intercom channel.

Please take a break after doing those tasks, we don't like back-to-back shifts.

We will meet every day to distribute the shifts for the following day.

This angeltype is restricted by double-opt-in by a team supporter. Please show up at the according introduction meetings.

This group of people is responsible for the smooth operation of the VOC infrastructure itself, e.g. cutting and releasing the talks, poking the streams, manage speaker inquiries and much more. Basically they resolve all those issues, that nobody notices ;)

If you are interested in helping us (maybe even during the various events during the year), feel free to meet us at our assembly.

As a Welcome Angel, you provide an essential service to all other angels when they arrive. Your job is to mark them as arrived in the angel system, hand them their angel badge and answer their questions. You should be familiar with the venue since they will likely ask you where e.g. the infodesk or the assembly area is.

This job is a very good opportunity as a first step if you want to get involved in Heaven.

Please come to the Heaven's desk before your first shift as a Welcome Angel so that we can give you a short introduction and activate the permissions you need in the angel system.

Welcome Angel shifts are available on days 0 and 1 only,

Als Welcome Angel übernimmst du einen wichtigen Service für alle anderen Engel, wenn sie ankommen. Deine Aufgabe ist es, ankommende Engel im Engelsystem als angekommen zu markieren und ihnen ihr Engelbadge auszuhändigen. Du solltest mit dem Event-Gelände vertraut sein, weil dich wahrscheinlich viele Engel fragen werden, wo z.B. der Infotresen oder die Assemblyfläche ist.

Dieser Job ist eine sehr gute Einstiegsmöglichkeit, wenn du im Himmel mitarbeiten möchtest.

Bitte begib dich vor deiner ersten Schicht als Welcome Angel zum Himmelstresen, damit wir dir eine kurze Einweisung geben können und dir die notwendigen Rechte im Engelsystem freischalten können.

Schichten als Welcome Angel gibt es nur an den Tagen 0 und 1.
