Abstract for: Building and Publishing Model Interfaces using Stella and iThink

This is a hands on workshop that will take participants through the process of creating an interface to their Stella or iThink models and potentially publishing that interface to the web. We will start with an existing model and work through the process of creating an elegant interface that allows users with no background training to have fun and gain insights working with a model. Using isee Netsim we will demonstrate how that interface can then be made available to anyone browsing the web. No special facility with Stella or iThink is required. Participants should bring a Windows or Macintosh computer and we will install the software for use during the workshop.
