Wargaming Demonstration with the Center for Army Analysis
Ever wonder how policymakers think through difficult problems and develop plans for future wars, crises, and difficult decisions?
Join the Triangle Institute for Security Studies as we host the Center for Army Analysis, the US Army’s premier analytical wargaming agency for a demonstration of this kind of crisis simulation. Learn more about how senior policy and military officials use wargaming to inform operational planning, institutional strategy, and plan for an uncertain future, thinking not just about future conflict, but a wide range of global challenges.
Wargames are immersive exercises where participants make decisions to simulate real-world behavior in strategic situations. While wargames are frequently used to study how actors make decisions during conflict, they can also be used to model human behavior and possible outcomes in many other scenarios.
Get hands-on with some wargames designed by the Center for Army Analysis and other Department of Defense wargaming organizations that have been used to inform leaders in the Pentagon. And learn about the student internships, fellowships, and job-opportunities at CAA.
No prior experience or knowledge is needed. Students at all levels are encouraged to apply to learn more about how these kind of simulations work and inform government decisionmaking.
Applications are open to all students (undergraduate, graduate, professional) at any of the four TISS consortium schools: Duke University, North Carolina Central University, North Carolina State University, and the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.
This wargaming demonstration will be held on Saturday, February 18, 2023 on the campus of North Carolina Central University in Durham. Students should be prepared to participate in an all-day event (e.g., 9am-5pm).
Lunch will be provided. Parking will be available, and we will assist with transportation options for participants coming from outside Durham.
There’s no cost to participate, but space is limited. We ask those interested in participating to complete an application form before December 19, 2022. We will notify all applicants about their participation at the beginning of the spring semester.
