Abstract

The Multi-Agent Programming Contest, MAPC, is an annual, community-serving competition that attracts groups from all over the world. Its aim is to facilitate advances in programming multiagent systems (MAS) by (1) developing benchmark problems, (2) enabling head-to-head comparison of MAS’s and (3) supporting educational efforts in the design and implementation of MAS’s. We report about its eighth edition and give a detailed overview of the participants strategies and the overall contest.
