After TICS 2016 it gives us great pleasure to announce that our second edition of this ambitious conference will be held from the 2nd to the 5th of November 2017. Organised in a Joint-Cabinet-Crisis format, this conference will introduce university students from all parts of Germany, Europe, and indeed the world to the concept of MUN and Crisis Simulation, whether they are eager bachelor students with no experience at all, or masters students and doctoral candidates with years of experience. We aim to provide not only an exciting mode of simulation, but also round off the experience with a fulfilling cultural and social experience, right in the heart of the Swabian area. We therefore warmly invite you to apply to this young conference, and thus give us the chance to make TICS 2017 as great as TICS 2016.
This year’s crisis simulation will revolve around current developments in South-East Asia and will primarily focus on the current stand-off between North Korea and the international community over its nuclear program. Delegates will be tasked with bringing this standoff to a conclusion whilst (hopefully) avoiding all-out nuclear conflict between the interested parties. In addition to this, the crisis will also have a second dimension involving the conflicting territorial claims in the South China Sea. Resolving the first crisis will require states with conflicting views on the future of South China Sea to cooperate with each other providing a unique challenge for those participating in the crisis. This year’s crisis promises to be a tense, dynamic, and high-tempo second edition of the TICS project.
