Description / Overview

The MORS Wargame CoP explores the use professional games as a tool for analysis and education. The Wargame CoP will support the discovery of new ideas and will derive new approaches to support a variety of unique military problems. Members will review the status of the challenges we have previously identified and add to the list the latest issues that are confronting the many communities that have chosen wargaming as a methodology for shedding light on complex, non-linear human-focused problems. The CoP will address current issues of goal definition, game design, game scenario development, venue preparation, player selection and training, portrayal of cultural and societal behaviors, capturing of decisions, and data analysis. The MORS Wargame CoP will devote time to discussing the current games being used in the community, their purposes, and high-level descriptions of their results. In addition to discussions on conventional games, we expect discussion on irregular warfare and space games, homeland defense and littoral games and recent logistics and future technology issue games. The Wargaming CoP is an extension of WG 30 and supports all MORS Wargaming events held at MORS symposia and workshops.

All MORS Wargame CoP events are coordinated with the CASL Wargaming Roundtable sponsored by the National Defense University. For additional information on CASL, please contact: Mr. Timothy Wilke timothy.wilkie@ndu.edu and Ms. Elizabeth Bartels Elizabeth.Bartels@ndu.edu.
