Connections 2022 will take place at the Institute for Defense Analyses (IDA) at 730 East Glebe Road,
Alexandria, Virginia 22305. Click here for directions: Directions to IDA. Please be sure to note the parking directions, as the Potomac Yard shopping center will tow. Also, please note that while the parking directions indicate that the IDA garage is available, because of other events at the IDA building Connections attendees will only be able to use the visitor lot off of Seaton Ave. Participants are encouraged to carpool, Uber/Lyft/taxi, or use public transportation if feasible. If we overflow our available space in the visitor lot, several private garages are nearby and available for use, for a fee.
Registration for Connections 2022 has reached its capacity and is now closed. You can still use the link below to join the waitlist. There are generally some cancellations before the conference, and we will add people individually from the waitlist if/when cancellations of existing registrations take place.
(The registration link is to a Google Form, which may be difficult to access on some military networks. If you experience difficulty registering from work, we recommend you try from home on your personal device.)
The conference agenda, speaker bios, and presentation abstracts are available at the Connections 2022: Wargaming and Experimentation page.
