The MicroJIAC team has participated in the Multi-Agent Programming Contest 2007 with some success. This year, we attended again. Our contest contribution was implemented by a student during a university course using the current version of our agent framework. Unlike the gold mining scenario of MAPC 2007, this year’s cow herding scenario had higher complexity and was a very good testbed to evaluate our new agent framework.
