The Back Office is the place, where you can directly ask the Staff for information about the food, schedule, rooms, etc.. In front of the Back Office is the registration before the conference will start.
The Background Guide (BGG) is the main document delegates can use for preparing for the conference. It contains specific information on the topics which are
debated in the committees. Each committee has its own BGG. Delegates will receive their respective BGG via the MainMUN webpage a few weeks in advance of the conference.
A chaperone is someone who accompanies a group delegation. At MainMUN, chaperones and faculties are considered the same thing.
All country or NGO requests must be made through the conference’s online application process. All applications received by the priority deadline (24 January 2021) will be given equal consideration. Applications received after this date are accepted on a first-come, first-served basis.
All regular participants at MainMUN are delegates. A delegate has to pay the delegates fee, is assigned a country in one of the committees and has to be present during committee sessions
The delegates fee has to be paid by every delegate who wants to take part in the conference. It covers the costs for the organisation of the conference such as the online platforms. The Delegates fee at MainMUN 2021 is 10€, of which 8€ go to the MainMUN and 2€ to MyMUN (Our registration plattform).
A delegation is a group of people attending MainMUN together. Delegations usually are from other universities or schools. They usually
consist of a faculty or head delegate and a number of delegates. You do not need to be part of a delegation to attend MainMUN, we accept single delegates as well. All delegates sign up through our regular application form (please state the name of your delegation in the provided field in the form).
The Faculty is the head of a group delegation that is attending MainMUN. Faculties usually do not take part as delegates as they are usually teachers, supervisors or chaperones and therefore don’t pay a fee. They need to sign up through our regular form and provide a full list of their delegation members. If their delegation has members under the age of 18, faculties as well as the under-age delegates must fill out a consent form (which will be distributed on time).
A Head Delegate is the coordinator of a group delegation. He or she will be attending the conference as a delegate as well and is our contact for the group. The Head Delegate will pay the regular delegate’s fee and sign up through the normal application form.

At this year’s MainMUN you can apply to take part in the conference as a member of a Press Organisation.

The Rules of Procedure (RoP) are the rules that apply during the committee sessions. These rules are handed to the delegates before the conference. Every delegate is kindly asked to take a look at the RoPs as preparation for the conference. For preparation, we will provide additional material and a time slot to ask questions on Friday afternoon.
