A conference for the Australian professional wargaming community.
Connections Oz is on again in 2015. It will be held in the Steve Howard Lecture Theatre, Interaction Design Lab , Level 5, Doug McDonell Building, at the University of Melbourne 14-15 December 2015.
This year the format will be slightly different with short presentations on day one, and longer presentations and demonstrations on day two. We would like to have a broad range of practitioners from the military, emergency management, law enforcement, business and academia.
The intent is for speakers to discuss their experience, problems they encountered, solutions, lessons and advice. The open discussion will allow participants the chance to compare experience and share their own lessons.
Anyone interested in attending is asked to contact Todd Mason , Mariana Zafeirakopoulos or Marcus Carter with a proposal.
