10th NDU Roundtable on Strategic Gaming (9/4/2012)

The Center for Applied Strategic Learning at National Defense University will be holding its 10th quarterly roundtable on strategic gaming in Washington DC on Monday, April 9:

National Defense University’s strategic gaming group, the Center for Applied Strategic Learning, would like to invite you to participate in the tenth 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. We will also stream audio from this event live over the internet, which we hope will make it easier for colleagues outside the Washington, DC area to participate. (Please contact one of the organizers for more information about the audio streaming.)

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 Markowitz of the Center for Naval Analyses will present on CNA’s work for Army TRADOC on wargaming irregular operations. Joe Saur of the Georgia Tech Research Institute will present “Thoughts on DIME on PMESII Modeling: the DARPA Integrated Battle Command Experiment”.

For full information and an invitation, contact Tim Wilkie at NDU.

    And I’m there virtually, via the audio stream.

    it’s definitely a smaller crowd this time. I wonder if the Easter weekend is affecting the turnout

    That works out at more wine-and-shrimp per capita.
