The programme is available here. We extended the previous 2.5 day conference to a full 3 days. We have also listened to your feedback and included significant time for networking, hands-on wargaming and design sessions. We retained the separate costs for Day 1 (Wargaming 101 and 102) and Days 2-3 for those who could only make the 'main' days.
