Conflict simulation, peacebuilding, and development

Connections North


CONNECTIONS NORTH is a community of practice devoted to the professional use of wargames (and other serious games) for education, training, and policy analysis in Canada. It is open to professional game designers, military and other government personnel, researchers, NGOs, and others associated with professional (war)gaming.

If you would like to join the electronic group, contact Rex Brynen (McGill University/PAXsims), including a few lines describing your background and professional interest.

CONNECTIONS NORTH also hosts an annual conference on professional wargaming, conflict simulation, and serious games.

The next CONNECTIONS NORTH conference will take place on 9 June 2023, at the Canadian War Museum in Ottawa. Further details will be announced when available via PAXsims, the Connections North email list, and the Connections family of professional wargaming conferences.

CONNECTIONS NORTH is a sponsor of the Derby House Principles on diversity and inclusion in professional wargaming.
