For over twenty years, the Virginia International Crisis Simulation has been hosted at the University of Virginia in Charlottesville, Virginia. The conference takes place on the historic grounds of the university, which provides an excellent atmosphere for delegates to engage in the debate and diplomacy of Model United Nations. Each year, VICS brings 500 delegates to the university, and over 100 students contribute to organizing the conference. VICS is a collection of crisis committees inspired by a diversity of topics, regions, and periods. These committees promise to be noteworthy because of their small size yet exhilarating crisis and debate. We have ensured a mix of traditional and more creative committees that stretch the imagination of delegates to test their critical thinking ability. If you have any questions, please consult our FAQ or email our Secretary-General, Leah Day, at email@example.com.
