The Automated Negotiating Agent Competition (ANAC) is an international tournament that has been running since 2010 to bring together researchers from the negotiation community. ANAC provides a unique benchmark for evaluating practical negotiation strategies in multi-issue domains and has the following aims:
This year, we introduce three different negotiation research challenges:
We expect innovative and novel agent strategies will be developed, and the submitted ANAC 2022 agents will serve as a negotiating agent repository to the negotiation community. The researchers can develop novel negotiating agents and evaluate their agents by comparing their performance with the performance of the ANAC 2022 agents.
Explore the strategies and difficulties in creating efficient agents whose primary purpose is to negotiate with other agent's strategies.
Design and build an autonomous agent that negotiates on behalf of a factory manager situated in a supply chain management simulation.
