Abstract: The Modelling4All Project ( is attempting to make the process of constructing, running, and analysing (agent-based) computer models accessible to non-programmers. We support a Web 2.0 community where participants construct and share models, model components, and associated materials. The community discusses, rates, tags, and organises these contributions. Crucially, the modelling can also be performed on the web site. Model builders without programming expertise can use any web browser to browse and assemble model components into models that can be run on the browser. Learning materials can be integrated with the modelling software and the community resources.
