Submission will stop exactly at July 15th 2020 9:10:00AM UTC-12. Please do not wait for the last minute.
You may have noticed a drop in the scores of all agents starting July second when builtin agents stopped being around in most simulations. The organization committee may introduce new agents in the qualifications and finals to avoid market blockage.
The SCML Organization Committee noticed that several participants utilize machine learning techniques for generating their trading strategy and/or negotiation strategy. Effective use of ML techniques usually requires training data that is hard to collect for participants. Today, we release anonymized logs from some of the world simulations conducted so far in the live competition hoping that this dataset can help strengthen submissions. This data can be found here. The full description of the data is included in the data archive.
Another anonymized data release is scheduled around 2020/7/4 (almost ten days before the final deadline). Note that it will not be possible to know whether a log in this later release belongs to a simulation that was conducted before or after the current release and the two datasets may have substantial overlap. This is to ensure that there is not practical way to link agents in the released data to specific teams/submitted agents. You can check other anonymity measures in the description provided as part of the data archive.
Please note though that agent behavior during the final competition is likely to deviate from the behaviors found in these logs.
In light of the postponement of IJCAI2020 to Januray 2021, the final results of the SCM league will be announced with the rest of ANAC 2020 at IJCAI. Because of this postponement and based on numerous requests, we decided to extend the deadline for submission to July 14th, 2020 with the deadline of initial submission extended to July 1st, 2020.
Moreover, A select number of finalists will be invited to publish their agent descriptions in the Journal Knowledge Engineering Review. We aim to provide student support to travel to IJCAI.
This is the home of the Supply Chain Management League one of ANAC 2020 leagues @ IJCAI-PRICAI 2020.
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 July 1st.
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_PRICAI 2020.
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.
