The second lecture of the King’s Wargaming Network will feature Dr Yuna Wong (RAND) on ‘Developing an Academic Discipline of Wargaming: Pathways, Possibilities and Pitfalls’. The event will be held on 16 January 2019 from 18:00 to 19:30 at Bush House Lecture Theatre 1 at King’s College London, and live streamed via the King’s Wargaming Network YouTube channel, kclwargaming.

Dr Yuna Huh Wong is a policy researcher whose work includes wargaming human-machine collaboration and manned-unmanned teaming in the Third Offset; surveying wargaming tools and approaches in support of Marine Corps wargaming; Army satellite bandwidth demand to support training; developing capacity metrics for Marine Corps wargaming; and developing scenarios using future trends for the Air Force. She is also a professor at the Pardee RAND Graduate School.

In this public lecture, Dr Yuna Wong (RAND) discusses how we can build an integrated, globally-recognised academic field in which knowledge about wargaming may be produced, preserved, and transmitted. She addresses the questions: Why do we need an academic discipline of wargaming? What concrete steps can we take in the short and medium terms to establish such a discipline? What obstacles might we face in this endeavour?
