After having completed the application process and having received the confirmation of your assignment (country and committee), the logistic and didactic preparation phase of the conference begins. Each of the 193 delegations will be composed of a minimum of two to a maximum of fourteen delegates, based on the number of committees in which that State is present. It will be the responsibility of the research committee to inform the participants about the colleagues with whom they will be working during the days of the simulation so that they can contact each other as early as January/February.
In order to provide students with a proper Festival experience, and to make sure everyone’s experience is of a certain quality, the association organises a pre-conference preparation schedule:
- Access to the online didactic material (Delegate’s guide, committee guide, preparation videos);
- Preparation webinar (4 meetings in the month of February 2017);
- Access to the online forum to interact with officials and other delegates;
- Support staff in order to best prepare the position paper.
Each delegation is required to present a position paper on their committees agenda topic(s). Only those delegations who send the paper before the deadline will be eligible for the “Best position paper” award.
PLEASE NOTE: Only ONE paper per delegation.
