From 7-10 May 18, the NATO School Oberammergau (NSO) hosted this year's first iteration of the Combined Training Conference (CTC) with 372 attendees from 40 countries.

The purpose of the CTC was to support NATO interoperability and further develop Allied and Partner Nation capabilities for the years 2018 through 2021.

United States and NATO military planning staffs came together to coordinate, source, and schedule regional, land-based, joint integrated exercises, and individual training events, using multiple plenary sessions and eight different syndicates and workshops. Events discussed included National exercises, LANDCOM training and exercises, and the Exercise Dynamic Front.
