The 12th annual competition since 2010, ANAC 2021 (Automated Negotiating Agents Competition) was held online this year in conjunction with IJCAI 2021 (International Joint Conference on Artificial Intelligence). Our students of the School of Engineering, advised by Assistant Professor Reyhan Aydoğan and Professor Amy Greenwald at Brown University, were awarded the runner-up prize in two categories  (standard and collusion track) which evaluated and awarded practical negotiation & production strategies in Supply Chain Management League (SCML).

Mehmet Onur Keskin and Gevher  Yesevi, master’s students in the Artificial Intelligence Program of the Institute of Science and Technology, and Umut Çakan, a master’s student in the Computer Engineering Program of the same institute, designed an intelligent agent for supply chain management that can analyze the market and competitors’ behaviors and negotiate about price and quantity of products with the suppliers and customers according to production capabilities. They were awarded the second place prize with their team named Charlies’ Agent in SCML league conducted in cooperation with the NEC-AIST, Japan. We congratulate our students for their outstanding achievements and wish them all an academic life and a career full of achievements. In addition, we would like to thank the team advisors and  Assistant Professor Emre Sefer for their fruitful feedback during the development of the agent.

The previous competitions have spawned novel research in AI in the field of autonomous agent design, which are available to the wider research community. The focus of this year’s competition is on multi-party negotiation in smart energy grids.
