Connections 2017

Connections 2017 will be held August 1-4 in Quantico, VA.  This year’s theme is: “Advancing Wargaming and Analysis as Distinct yet Complementary Tools”

Registration for Connections 2017 is now open!

Interested in presenting something during our demonstration/poster session on Tuesday, August 1?  Please email with a description of your demo, poster, or playtest, or with any questions you might have.

The current draft of the Connections 2017 agenda can be found here.

The conference will be open to all contributors to the field of wargaming: military, government, defense contractors, academics, and recreational gamers. While not open to those who purely enjoy wargames, Connections does define “contributor” broadly. Connections welcomes everyone from a senior wargame director to a newly assigned lieutenant, from a wargame publisher to a play tester.
