This is the home of the Supply Chain Management League one of ANAC 2021 leagues @ IJCAI 2021.
The main motivation behind the SCM league is to increase the relevance of autonomous 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.
It is highly recommended to register your interest in the league by registering to this website by June 15th (No need to upload an agent by that time). It is mandatory to upload a preliminary version of the agent by June 21st.
Please note that the score on the live-competition will not impact in any way your final score in the official competition to be announced at IJCAI 2021.
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 2020
- In 2021, we introduce a simpler form of the game running in the same environment as a third track called SCML-OneShot. An overview of of this simpler form is found here. The full description of this simpler form is found here. The main differences between SCML-OneShot and the other two tracks can be found here.
- The evaluation criteria for the collusion track will be slightly modified to take into account a “the consolidated financial state” of all factories run by the same participant. More specifically, the total balance (and inventory) of all factories controlled by an agent type will be aggregated before calculating the profit giving a single score for the agent type in every simulation instead of three as was the case in 2020. This means that median-pumping by getting one factory to lose while pushing the profits of the other two up will not be effective in 2021.
- Finalists for the “collusion” track MUST have a dedicated “collusion strategy” section in their reports with a non-trivial strategy for colluding among their factory managers.
- When submitting your agent this year, you will be given the choice to be considered only for one or more of the three tracks. By default agents built using the OneShot template run in the three tracks while agents developed using the Standard component-based and monolethic templates run only in the standard and collusion tracks.
- We created discussion rooms for the three tracks here to help participants get together and contact organizers. You can also report bugs, feature requests and open new discussion topics on the same page.
Getting started and getting help
- The first thing you need to do is to read the game description for the one shot track and/or the standard/collusion tracks. More detailed description of the OneShot track is available here and for the standard/collusion tracks is available here.
- If you have any questions, bug reports, feature requests, etc, you can open an issue on the SCML GitHub page
