This is the home of the Supply Chain Management League (SCML) one of ANAC 2024 leagues

The main motivation behind the SCM league is to increase the relevance of automated negotiation research by focusing on real-world scenarios that are characterized by situated negotiations, and complex dynamic utility functions.

The agent needs not only decide how to negotiate in a predefined single negotiation session, but when to join negotiations, and how to coordinate the behavior of its negotiators across multiple concurrent negotiations.

The live competition is run using fewer configurations than the official competition to facilitate faster feedback when submitting new agents. This may lead to different results in the official competition.

Changes from SCML 2023

The collusion track will be cancelled, the standard track will be simplified and the oneshot track will not change.
