The Connections Oz Wargame conference is an opportunity for professional wargamers to get together and share knowledge to improve the art and science of wargaming. It is also an opportunity for those new to the discipline to get some first hand experience playing and designing games and scenarios.
Although the title says “wargame” it is not limited to military applications. Business, emergency services and many other disciplines use games and simulation for planning, learning and experimentation.
This year’s conference will run over 3 days from Monday 11 Dec to Wednesday 13 Dec at the University of Melbourne. Exact times are yet to be confirmed, but expect a 10AM start on the Monday and a 4PM end on the Wednesday for those needing to plan travel.
Please forward this information to your colleagues and start planning some presentations or workshops. If anyone has a specific request for a workshop, something you may have heard about or would like to try, get in touch with us and we will see if we can arrange it.
Our plan is to run as many interactive activities as we can. There will be some introductory workshops, the opportunity to participate in a variety of game methods, and some game design activities.
Once again, registration will be free this year (with a gold coin donation for coffee/ tea etc). Sadly, this may be the last time we can run it at no cost, so get in while you can!
The conference is unclassified.
