About OpenABM

OpenABM Consortium

Welcome! The OpenABM Consortium is a group of researchers, educators, and professionals with a common goal - improving the way we develop, share, and utilize agent based models. We are currently developing a model library to preserve and maintain the digital artifacts and source code comprising an agent based model. We encourage you to add your models to the model archive. Note: you will need to register as a member before you can upload models. Please feel free to take a look at our charter (pdf | ppt), read our current by-laws, post a note to our forums, add information on events or job advertisements, or send us an email - your feedback and contributions are appreciated!

We’ve also created a mailing list that you are welcome to join for the CoMSES Digest, a quarterly newsletter edited by John Murphy with contributed articles and updates from the CoMSES Net community.
