Gamos is a software system for Geant4-based simulation. It comprises a framework, a set of components providing functionality to simulation applications on top of the Geant4 toolkit, and a collection of ready-made applications. It allows to perform Geant4-based simulations using a scripting language, without requiring the writing of C++ code. Moreover, Gamos design allows the extension of the existing functionality through user-supplied C++ classes. The main characteristics of Gamos and its embedded functionality are described.
