9th NDU Roundtable on Strategic Gaming (18/1)

The next National Defense University Roundtable on Innovation in Strategic Gaming will be held at NDU on the afternoon of Wednesday, 18 January 2012, in Washington DC:

National Defense University’s strategic gaming group, the Center for Applied Strategic Learning, would like to invite you to participate in the ninth session of our roundtable discussions on gaming. Our intent is to continue to build a regular forum for practitioners and scholars to exchange ideas and compare notes about issues relating to game design, the use of games for analytical and teaching purposes, and interesting projects in the field. This will be the first of our roundtable events to be streamed live over the internet, which we hope will make it easier for colleagues outside the Washington, DC area to participate.

Each roundtable invites a few speakers to present short, informal, talks on some aspect of strategic-level games to spark discussion among the group. The meetings last two hours and are held quarterly. Please feel free to circulate this invitation to interested colleagues – we’re hoping this will be a means of getting to know and building lasting professional connections between gamers.

Speakers: Mike Ottenberg an on-site contractor for OSD/CAPE, will present on the development of an irregular warfare wargame.  Bill Simpson of the Marine Corps Warfighting Lab will present on Multi-Sided Gaming (or “Getting a Handle on Chaos”).

Please note that attendance is by invitation only, and limited to those with professional interest in strategic gaming. For further information, contact Tim Wilkie at NDU.
