Connections 2021 is expected to be conducted virtually in conjunction with our hosts at The Army University, June 22-25. More information will be available soon as we work through the requirements of a digital conference.

COVID permitting, we will be virtually hosting the Connections Wargaming Conference from 22-25 June, 2021.

We've always thought of Connections as the place where professional wargaming nerds get together, present papers, trade techniques, play games and make connections. We've made a large number of very useful connections with people at Connections over the years!

We invite participation from those interested, both at Fort Leavenworth and in the wider professional wargaming community. You do not have to be a federal employee, and the conference is held at the unclassified/public release level. Attendance is free.

The topic theme of Connections this year is Ethics and Wargaming. As professional wargamers, our sponsors and players rely on our accurate models to guide decisions and aid learning. But accuracy is more than just realistic ranges and Combat Results Tables for full accuracy, we must take responsibility for lessons learned and dedicate time to explore the intangibles of ethics. We call for papers and presentations on how wargames can develop ethical leaders, how they can illuminate ethical issues warfighters may face in increasingly complex operational environments, and how wargame designers and players weigh ethical decisions.

Not an expert on Ethics? Connections welcomes presentations on other topics as well! Usually presentations, papers, and workshops on the Connections theme only account for around 40% of submissions and content we strongly encourage submissions on Education and Wargaming and other salient, perennial, or otherwise interesting professional wargaming topics.

We are testing some new delivery methods and have partnered with Armchair Dragoons to provide this extra event.
Registration can be accomplished at link

Special Note:
This event is a supplement to the normal Connections USA event scheduled each summer. Despite the challenges of COVID, planning is still underway to hold another Connections USA event from 22-25 June 2021 (details at connections-wargaming.com )
