Abstract: This paper gives an overview of the recent field of collaborative modelling. We first address the dimensions of group productivity, model quality and consensus. We then explore the factors on individual and team level that have significant impact on group productivity. We continue with an overview of the most relevant streams of collaborative modelling research, and conclude with a short outline of the papers in this special issue.

Keywords: collaborative modelling; participative modelling; group modelling; individual factors; team factors; group productivity; model quality; consensus.
