YSU-LEIMUN Conference Brochure


If you would like to register for our conference please contact our Registrar at


Please note that there is an Open Agenda in the Security Councils. This Open Agenda means that these committees may discuss any topic that is within their purview, not merely those topics that will be discussed in our Presidents' Letters. All other committees are limited to discussing the four topics assigned to them. However, any and all committees are subject to the possibility of being asked to discuss an emerging international crisis or being given an emergency simulation.

Please be aware that the availability of countries is always in flux. Once Open Registration begins, country availability can change on a daily basis as schools register, take additional assignments, or give back unneeded assignments. Country assignments will be updated as schools complete their registration.
