Welcome to OpenABM & CoMSES

OpenABM is a node in the CoMSES Network, providing a growing collection of tutorials and FAQs on agent-based modeling, a model library intended to provide a locus for authors and modelers to share their models, and forums for modeling-related discussions and job postings.

The Network for Computational Modeling for SocioEcological Science (CoMSES Net) is a scientific research coordination network to support and expand the development and use of computational modeling in the social and life sciences.

Featured Model

This model investigates the link between prescribed growth in body size, population dynamics and density dependence through population feedback on available resources.

Feb 07: The Digging into Data program gives research teams the ability to develop new insights, tools and skills in innovative social science and humanities research using large-scale data analysis. Fourteen teams representing Canada, the Netherlands, the United Kingdom and the United States will receive grants to investigate how computational techniques can be applied to "big data" in social sciences and the humanities. Each team represents collaborations among scholars, scientists and information professionals from leading universities and libraries in Europe and North America.
