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 February 15th (No need to upload an agent by that time). It is mandatory to upload a preliminary version of the agent by March 15th.

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.
