U.S. Army Training and Doctrine Command will host its first Mad Scientist Science Fiction Writing Contest and will accept submissions between Nov. 22, 2016, and Feb. 15, 2017.
The topic for this competition is “Warfare in 2030 to 2050” and is open to anyone interested.
Participants will have the opportunity to contribute ideas TRADOC may use to explore the future of warfare and technology.
Writers are asked to consider how trends in science, technology, society, the global economy and other aspects could change the world in a meaningful way, with implications for how the Army operates in future conflicts.
The winning contestant will receive an invitation to the concluding 2017 Mad Scientist Conference co-hosted by Georgetown University, Center for Security Studies, School of Foreign Service, Washington, D.C.
