The Scenario: Agents in the City
Our scenario consists of two teams of agents moving through the streets of a realistic city. Agents can earn money by completing tasks. Full specification.
Problems with the software? Just write to the mailing list. No problems? Register yourself to the mailing list anyway and write us a short hello message.
Unpack the software package and start the contest server for development and testing. In a shell:
cd server java -jar server-2017-0.5-jar-with-dependencies.jar \ --monitor 8000 # with webmonitor on port 8000
The package contains dummy agents for several platforms. You can use these as starting points:
There have also always been teams that implemented the communication protocol themselves.
Participants and all interested colleagues are invited to subscribe to our mailing list:
All the important details and announcements including scenario and communication protocol specifications as well as software release announcements and bug reports will be announced and discussed via this list.
The mailing list archive is publically available.
We have listed some major changes in case you are coming from the 2016 version.
After the tournament we invite every participant to submit a paper about their team. The papers of which the quality has been assured will be regularly published. The publication outlet will be announced as soon as possible.
The winner of the contest will be awarded with a voucher for 500 EUR worth in books, thankfully provided by Springer Verlag. Requirements are the submission of a paper and the source codes of the agents.
