IT at BIGMUN
Over the years, as technology has been developing and its usage has increased, BIGMUN has adapted to fit the needs of its participants and make conference processes more effective. To this extent, we rely extensively on technology, and as such we expect that delegates bring a laptop or tablet that they can use during the conference.
During the debate, note-passing has been largely re-placed by electronic methods. Amendments are to be sent electronically as well. This year, the conference will be using the software Discord. We require all delegates and Student Officers to make their accounts before the conference.
BIGMUN also uses technology for resolutions. They will be shared within committees using Google Docs, where the chairs will edit them. They will also be projected onto a screen so that delegates can view them collectively and in real time. The resolution Approval Panel will also use Google Docs. Information about this can be found in the Delegate Hand-book.
