Connections 2010 reports

A few weeks ago we mentioned the Connections 2010 conference on interdisciplinary wargaming. Now that its over, you’ll find conference reports here (by Eric Walters on ConSimWorld) and here (by Brant Guillory on GrogNews). As might be expected, there was considerable discussion of how to game insurgency/counterinsurgency, including the “non-kinetic” (political, social, development) dimensions.

One response to “Connections 2010 reports

    I missed Connections this year, to my regret.
    I did go last year, but the event was paired with a “Gametech User’s Conference” which concentrated on training aids and simulators – its concentration on high-tech goshwow seemed to overwhelm the discussions we were having.
    Perhaps next year.
