Unpack the software package and start the contest server for development and testing. In a shell:
cd server java -jar server-2018-1.1-jar-with-dependencies.jar \ --monitor 8000 # with webmonitor on port 8000
The package contains some dummy agents. You can use these as a starting point:
There have also always been teams that implemented the communication protocol themselves.
The winner of this year’s contest will be awarded a voucher for 500 EUR worth in books, thankfully provided by Springer Verlag. Requirements are the submission of a team description paper and the source code of the agents.
Participants and all intrested 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 shared on this list.
The mailing list archive is publically available.
There have been some changes since the 2017 version. Most notably money is no longer the primary goal. Instead you build wells to generate points.
After the tournament we invite every participant to submit a paper about their team. Once the quality of the papers has been assured they will be regularly published. The publication outlet will be announced as soon as possible.
