Gametech 2010

With all the discussion of military and counterinsurgency simulations on PaxSims, readers could be forgiven for thinking we’ve gone over to the military-industrial complex. What can we say–it is a much larger market and user base than is the humanitarian and development community, and they have some pretty neat toys. Still, we’ll try to keep sight of our primary focus!

In the meantime, for those of you who might be interested, another conference to look out for: Gametech 2010 (29-31 March 2010, Orlando).

Defense GameTech User’s Conference Goals:

  • Promote the use of game technology within the Department of Defense
  • Provide a forum for DoD game technology users to exchange ideas and information Defense GameTech Users’ Conference Objectives
