席位问题 Arrangement of the Seat

1.请问我们可以把英文场的席位换成中文场的吗?
Can we change the seat from an English committee into a Chinese one?

BIMUN原则上不允许替换席位。
No delegate shall change the seat before or after the release of the Seat Distribution.

2.我们学校得到了双代场的一个席位,请问这意味着我们可以派出一位代表还是两位?
If my school gets one seat in a double-delegation committee, should we send one student or two?

BIMUN的代表席位数即为代表人数,双代场的一个席位即意味着贵校将派出一位代表参与该双代场。
In BIMUN, one seat refers to one delegate/person. In this sense, if you get one seat in a double-delegation committee, you can only send one delegate instead of two delegates to attend the conference.

3.我们学校得到了同一双代场的两个席位,请问这代表我们学校的两名代表会自动成为搭档吗?
If my school gets two seats in a double-delegation committee, will these two delegates automatically represent one country or entity?

BIMUN秘书处在实际操作中会酌情将来自同一代表团的两位代表分配至同一国家,但不必然。
The Secretariat of BIMUN will take that situation into consideration when allocating the seats of the committee, but this will NOT definitely happen.

4.我校某位代表突然有事不来了,请问可以换代表吗?代表费可以退还吗?
If one delegate of our school can not turn up due to some urgent matter, can we send another delegate to replace him or her? Or, is there a refund for the registration fee?

原则上BIMUN不提倡更换代表,尤其是在国家分配完毕之后。如果代表确实因为客观原因无法正常参会,请尽早向联络专员提出。2019年3月22日前申请退会可获得50%的会费返还,会费将返还至缴费账户。2019年3月22日0点后申请退会恕不进行退款。即使如此,我们也强烈要求无法参会的代表告知联络专员退会信息,否则将影响所在学校未来的参会资格。
Generally speaking, it is not encouraged to change a delegate, especially after we have completed the allocation of seats for each committee. Delegates should inform the Liaisons as soon as possible if they de facto can not participate. Delegates will be refunded 50% of their registration fee if the application of withdrawal is submitted before 22 March, 2019. The money will be automatically paid back to the account that submitted the registration fee. It is not refundable if the application is handed in after 23:59(GMT+8) 22 March, 2019. However, it is necessary and crucial that delegates inform the Liaisons of their withdrawal. Otherwise, it will influence the future eligibility for BIMUN of your school.

5.我们学校想要更多的代表名额,请问能多分几个吗?
Can my school have more seats or a larger quota of delegates?

BIMUN采取邀请制,秘书处一直在综合考量多方面因素并尽力平衡地进行代表名额分配。原则上已邀请学校的席位不会增加,如希望获得更多代表名额可向联络专员提出申请。请注意,由于席位有限,只有在其他学校放弃代表名额之后才会出现代表名额空缺。因此,只有极少部分学校能够得到增加的名额。
BIMUN is an invitation-only conference. The Secretariat has long been evaluating and trying to balance the number of seats for each school. In principle, NO extra seats will be allocated to the schools that are already invited. It is acceptable, however, to send applications to the Liaisons if your school requires more seats in the conference. Please note, with limited seats available, only few schools would have extra quota of delegates provided that other schools gave up their seats.

6.我想知道别的学校的席位分配情况,请问可以吗?
Can I know how many seats other schools have?

BIMUN对任何学校的参会情况都予以保密。
Information about any other schools attending BIMUN is deemed confidential.

7.我校某位代表不能去了,于是我们和另外一所学校说好把这个席位给他们,请问可以吗?
If one of our delegates fails to attend the conference, can we give the seat to another school?

BIMUN严禁任何形式的私下席位交换,任何形式的私下席位交换均不被BIMUN承认。
BIMUN prohibits any private exchange of seats between schools. Any private exchange of seats won’t be recognized by BIMUN.
