I was at the head table for this one, but will link back to the talks when we get to them. There was a lot of great material here. Dr Mason talked about how to sell yourself as a wargamer. Mr Ruhnke covered the development of terrorism in wargaming and getting at the roots of "why terror"? Mr Train talked about the development of different COIN wargames and how that model could be built out to other things.
