Event Menu


Plan to attend the upcoming Wargaming Special Meeting in Hawaii! Wargaming in the Pacific Special Meeting will take place from 27 February - 01 March in 2023. The main focus will be professional gaming (including wargaming) in the Pacific theater, more specifically, on gaming by, with, and for partners and allies in the region. The meeting will consist of several tracks covering gaming design, cyber or space gaming, and basic topics in the design and execution of professional games and will include lectures, discussions, and active wargames.


This will be a three-day meeting with the structure of learning, discussing, and doing.  Each day will focus on one of those key words.
