Abstract

The purpose of this project was to create a website to support the annual Cairo American College Model United Nations (CACMUN) conference. Cairo American College is a private, non-profit, K-12 school for expatriate children living in Cairo, Egypt. Model United Nations (MUN) is an educational simulation of the United Nations. During MUN conferences, students assume the role of delegates from various countries, and work with peers to discuss and solve world issues. Each year, approximately 200 students from ten schools attend CACMUN. Most schools come from different countries in the Middle East. The conference needs to be advertised to potential guests. Information and documents must be distributed to schools and delegates actually attending. The website also needs to help register and collect data from all attendees. Finally, educational interaction between the students should be encouraged. A database driven website was programmed to address these needs. Dynamic pages use PHP to access a local MySql installation that stores conference information. The resulting website successfully facilitated the CACMUN 2005 conference on October 20-23, 2005.
