Cornwallis I:  Analytic Approaches to the Study of Future Conflict

The first workshop was organized to highlight and share analysis techniques and methods, including simulation, useful for the study of and training for present and future operations in which military forces might be used — including newly demanding, multi-dimensional operations.  The organizers hoped to provide a forum for detailed presentation of theory and potential applications of new techniques and methods.

Unfortunately, the papers presented at this workshop are not available for downloading from this website.  However, the proceedings were published in book form by the Canadian Peacekeeping Press and secondhand copies are occasionally offered for sale by online retailers.
