Friends of Millbank: Table Top Planning
Games are being used more and more as tools for training, education and research. They offer a uniquely interactive way of gaining insights into the dynamics of complex situations. Professor Sabin will introduce the diverse activities within the new Wargaming Network at King’s College London, including the annual Connections UK conference, the Carnegie-funded crisis simulations researching the impact of missile defence, and the programme of postgraduate study which for 15 years has taught students how to design their own tailored wargames. Colonel David Vassallo will then outline how he has used similar techniques in the medical field, to prepare his surgical teams using the ‘Hospex’ game exercises he has designed.

Philip Sabin is Professor of Strategic Studies at King’s College London.  He specialises in the use of wargaming and simulation to analyse the dynamics of military conflict across the ages, as illustrated in his two latest books ‘Lost Battles’ and ‘Simulating War’.    

Between 1900 and 2000, Chelsea’s Millbank Buildings housed the Royal Army Medical College. This event is presented by Friends of Millbank, who work with Chelsea College of Arts to keep the history of the Millbank site alive. Talks are free, all welcome.
