Conflict simulation, peacebuilding, and development

Connections 2011

Connections is the only annual wargaming conference that brings together all three major elements of the field: military, commercial, and academic. This year it will be held 1-4 August at National Defense University, in Washington DC.

2011 is the 200th anniversary of modern wargaming… In keeping with this anniversary the theme of Connections 2011 is “The Next 200 Years of Wargaming – Expanding Our Scope” For example, Connections 2011 will explore how wargaming can evolve to effectively explore; science & technology alternatives, optimizing tooth and tail mix, orchestrating all of government responses. We explore this theme through; keynotes, four panels, three working groups, demos and a playtest…. Still, many believe the most valuable element of Connections is the chance to meet leaders from across the branches of wargaming.

You’ll find further information at the Connections website. I’m certainly hoping to attend.
