This page gives an overview of the events that happened at a convention.
The first tab shows all of the proposals to create and amend documents, arranged by committee and document in a hierarchical tree. Clicking on one of these events will take you to that moment in the relevant committee's timeline.
The second two tabs arrange this information by committee and session (allowing you to see where most events happened), and by delegation (so that you can see which delegations and individuals made the greatest contributions).
Mouse over each segment to see its label. Click on a segment to magnify that part of the record.
A link to the top right will take you to more details, depending on what you have selected.
