NDU CASL Roundtable on Strategic Gaming (26/6/2012)

Yes, it’s that time again—the announcement has gone out for the next iteration of the regular quarterly series of roundtables on strategic gaming at the Center for Applied Strategic Learning, National Defense University:

The Center for Applied Strategic Learning (CASL) is pleased to announce another session in our quarterly series of Roundtables on Innovation in Strategic Gaming. The event will take place on June 26 at the NDU campus, located at Ft. Lesley J. McNair in SW DC. Details of exactly when and where will be provided to those who RSVP (see below).

Our speakers for this session will be Michael Wasserman of the Intelligence Community Simulation Center and CDR Phil Pournelle of OSD Net Assessment.

Please RSVP to by June 22 if you would like to join us in person or remotely via audio streaming (and please specify one or the other or both, if you need to keep your options open). We will be using the NDU streaming service, so if you would like to listen in please follow the link and watch one of the saved events to make sure this service works on your computer. You will still need to RSVP to receive the speakers’ slides.

Please note, this stream of the roundtable will NOT be saved or archived for later access, unlike the events in CASL’s Lectures on Strategic Gaming series, which are maintained for future download. The Roundtable series is meant to stimulate ongoing professional discourse within the gaming community, while the goal for the Lectures is to gradually create a set of saved presentations for journeyman gamers to have available for reference.

Whether you are a newcomer to the roundtable or a veteran participant, we hope that you will be able to join us in person or online. Our goal of creating a regular forum for gaming practitioners to meet and discuss issues in the field is being realized and it is thanks to you, the gaming community, and your continued interest.

These are excellent meetings, and well worth attending (in person or online) for those with an professional interest in strategic gaming. I’ll certainly be watching and listening to the livestream.
