ICSIM is a connectionist net simulator being developed at ICSI. It is object-oriented to meet the requirements for flexibility and reuse of models and to allow the user to encapsulate efficient customized implementations perhaps running on dedicated hardware. Nets are composed by combining off-the-shelf library classes and, if necessary, by specializing some of their routines.The report gives an overview of the simulator. The class structure and some important design decisions are sketched and a number of example nets are used to illustrate how net structure, connectivity and behavior are defined.
