Frozen Accord (12/02/23) Sign-Up Form

Join us for our second simulation of the 2023-2024 academic year, in partnership with the National Churchill Leadership Center. In Frozen Accord, participants must work to de-escalate a growing crisis between Russia and the United States.  

In 2028, Russia, under new political leadership, is blindsided by sudden protests demanding independence in the vital exclave of Kaliningrad. Concerns regarding the source of this radical new movement lead Russia to increase its military presence in the Baltic Sea and along its western border. This prompts the United States and NATO to hold naval exercises in the Baltic Sea. Meanwhile, protests in Kaliningrad continue to grow as the diplomatic situation worsens. Tensions are running high, and participants must work within their government to prevent war from breaking out while also keeping an eye on their political aims.

Frozen Accord will take place on Saturday, December 2nd, 2023 from 11:00 AM EST to 4:30 PM EST. This simulation will likely be held in-person at GWU's Funger Hall, 2201 G St NW, Washington, DC 20052.

Please note that the simulation may be capped at 80 participants. Any sign ups in excess of this number may be waitlisted. In the event that we have to waitlist participants, those participants will be eligible for priority registration for SCS' next simulation, and will be notified of this via email.
SCS simulations are designed based on the number of participants that plan attend our events. Therefore, registrants who fail to attend the event without giving prior notification (a minimum of 12 hours before the event) may be unable to register for the next simulation. Anyone affected by this policy will be allowed to return after skipping one simulation. In light of the COVID-19 pandemic, we will implement this policy in a spirit of flexibility and accommodation to the extent possible.

Particular Areas of Interest or Knowledge
Please briefly describe any particular areas of personal interest or knowledge that you have that may be relevant to this simulation, such as interest in crisis management, previous understanding of international relations, and regional expertise. This is not required but will allow optimal role assignment for the simulation.
So that we have time to set up roles and channels appropriately on the Discord server, we require participants to register for a Discord account and join the server before arriving on sim day. You can sign up for Discord here:

After creating an account, we will email the server link to you with your briefing materials prior to the sim.

The sim day server will not be the same as the general SCS server. 
Discord Username *
Please find your Discord username in the bottom left-hand corner of your screen and paste it here (written in small grey text). This is essential as we need to know who is associated with each Discord account before the day of the simulation.
Event Attendance
Can you commit to attending the entire event from 11:00 AM to 4:30 PM EST on Saturday, December 2nd, 2023? This will not affect your ability to participate but will ensure critical positions are assigned to participants who will be present for the entire event.
