Multi-Agent Systems - Research & Teaching - Laboratory

Jørgen Villadsen

One of the main challenges in multi-agent systems is to develop tools and techniques for solving cooperative tasks in a dynamically changing environment.

Multi-Agent Programming Contest 2016

The aim of the annual agent contest is to stimulate research in the area of multi-agent systems, to identify key problems and to collect suitable benchmarks.
