This Collaborative Paper describes the proceedings of an international workshop on the use of operational gaming as an aid to policy analysis which was held at the International Institute for Applied Systems Analysis from 29th August to 1st September 1978. The purpose of the workshop was two-fold. In the first place, it was designed to ensure an interchange of ideas and information between experts from seventeen countries supporting IIASA in a field where there has been a good deal of informal comment but little serious attempt to identify the state of the art. In the second place, it was intended as a means of advising IIASA on the desirability of establishing some continuing effort in the field of operational gaming. The paper sets out some of the more important contributions made to the conference and presents a review of the discussions which took place over the three days. The main points of argument, uncertainty and agreement can thus be easily identified, and should be of help to others venturing into this field.

Subsequent to this meeting a program of work at IIASA has been prepared (Stahl, 1979) and is now in progress.
