Volunteers

From 25C3 Public Wiki

Jump to: navigation, search

Like each chaotic event the 25C3 will not be possible without the help of many volunteers. You can be one of them. Lots of volunteer work needs to be done before, during and after the event. Volunteering is actually a lot of fun. You will work with other people who share your interests, learn a whole lot in the process and really take part in the event.

Even though being a volunteer is not financially rewarded (does that mean that one has to pay the full entrance fee even if helping as a volunteer? YES! You do not even get a rebate.), we need volunteers to make the congress a success. As a volunteer, you will be doing important stuff, meet many interesting people and generally have a great time. Furthermore, we will provide a volunteers-only area with a small Hackcenter and some kind of never-ending breakfast. And of course you'll get a free volunteers conference shirt.

[edit] Becoming a Volunteer

If you're interested in helping out you can

  • just go to the angel area and just say you want to help. There will be people who show you how.
  • have a look at the pages of the volunteer teams and see if you want to help in one of them and if they need more help. Just contact the coordinator to find out how you can work best in that team.

[edit] Types of Volunteers

[edit] Conference

Conference angels make sure that all events start and end on time. They also ensure that the rooms don't become too crowded when more people want to listen to a talk than places are available.

[edit] Heralds

We need heralds with strong English skills and who feel comfortable speaking in front of a huge crowd, as all sessions will be properly announced. A herald is responsible for a lecture hall during a talk. As part of this, the herald ensures that the speaker(s) are there on time (if necessary, escort), introduce himself or herself to the speaker(s) and familiarize a bit with the speaker background and session content. They also ensure projection is set up. When everything is ready, the herald gets on the stage, introduces speaker(s) and talk, then hands over to the speaker(s). Then they stick around and try to follow the session to detect and fix problems before they arise. There is also a more detailed Heralds page available.

[edit] Documentation

All events will be archived and streamed. We need people who ensure our cameras (video angels) and microphones (audio angels) are up and running. In addition the angels help handing out microphones in the lecture rooms for questions to the panel.

[edit] Entrance

This is where tickets are sold, badges are fixed/checked and exits are secured. The entrance team includes cash desk angels and entrance angels (former guardian and crimp angels). For more information check out the entrance page. We will need a considerable number of reliable volunteers here.

[edit] Netangels

Netangels help the NOC to build the network and to provide support and service to the participants. Basic knowledge of computer networks should be available.

[edit] CERT

The angels of the CERT (Chaos Emergency Response Team) are the first responders and provide first aid in case of a medical emergency. We are looking after the fire protection in this building also.

[edit] Catering

Chaos angels and the crew are self-catered. So we need some angels that take care of that.

[edit] Meetings

There are regular meetings at 10 a.m. and 10 p.m.' every day congress day

[edit] Shift System

The Angel System is available here.

Please chose your shift there and be around 10 minutes before there, especially for audio and video angels.

[edit] Arch Angels

Arch Angels are the people who guide and take care of the Chaos Angels, technically they are part of the Chaos Angels. Most of them are coordinating a team or "mainly responsible" for specific tasks, but of course you can contact any of them in case of any questions.

All Chaos Angels may use the Backstage area where they will find both enough coffee, self-catering and internet. There is an exhaustive Angel FAQ available.
