Look back at the 5th edition of the Vauban Sessions:


Towards augmented rather than artificial intelligence

23rd and 24th May 2023 

Vauban Citadelle, Lille, France

4th Edition of the Vauban Sessions


The Marquis de Vauban (1633-1707), Marshal of France and special military advisor to King Louis XIV, was a French military engineer who consolidated and significantly improved the country’s border defences. A prolific builder, he upgraded some 3,000 cities’ fortifications and built 37 new fortresses. These defences remained untouched until the end of the 18th century, when progress in artillery rendered the fortresses obsolete. As an essayist, he developed new standard methods of attacks on fortresses and wrote a memorandum on new French frontier landmarks in France. 

The Vauban Sessions are an initiative of the Rapid Reaction Corps - France (RRC-FR) and CEIS-Avisa Partners and aim to bring together representatives of military forces from across the NATO Alliance and beyond to exchange lessons learnt and best practices linked to the digital transformation of our Armed Forces.


The 5th edition of the Vauban Session will take place on 23rd and 24th May 2023 at the Vauban Citadelle in Lille.
