The Open Agent Based Modeling (OpenABM) Consortium aims at “to foster and improve the development, communication, and dissemination of agent based models for research, practice, and education” which we think is a great idea.

Further information about the establishment of the OpenABM Consortium can be found in the Journal of Artificial Societies and Social Simulation. (JASSS) paper entitled “Towards a Community Framework for Agent-Based Modelling” by Marco Janssen, Lilian Na'ia Alessa, Michael Barton, Sean Bergin and Allen Lee.

The site ( is well worth exploring we have found the Overview, Design Concepts, Details (ODD protocol) topic very interesting.
