1651 days after the submission of the first line of code of iPlacard, the fully-functional Model United Nations Conference Management software by IMUNC is now publicly available. For now on, anyone hosting a MUN conference with less than 150 participants can visit http://iplacard.com to download and install the source code and use it freely by the license. For those hosting a conference with more than 150 participants, a special license is required from IMUNC.
For the past 4 years and 6 months, iPlacard has been doing exactly the same as the IMUNC Board predicted after IMUNC 2013 – leading the innovation of MUN management. Functions had been added to the system, stretching from a basic management system in version 1.0 and 2.0, to today fully-integrated architecture with iDocument, Info Flow, NFC, etc. The application procedure has been extended from the original IMUNC custom flow of Interview-Choose-Pay to fully customizable policy in interview and seat assigning. The conference experience was greatly improved by these enhancements. Today, Excel is rare in IMUNC as everything with conference management can be done in iPlacard.
While developing iPlacard, we thought about how it can better benefit the MUN community. That’s why we decided to make it publicly available. In the past 5 years, 5000 delegates had the opportunity use the delegate interface of iPlacard. That’s only one sixth of what iPlacard is capable of. Today, we open up the rest five sixth that includes the administration interface. We hope this will help small organizer managing their conference and bring progress to the MUN community.
