The Trading Agent Competition (TAC) has now become an annual fixture since its inception in 2000. The competition was conceived with the objective of studying automated trading strategies by focusing the research community on the development of competing solutions to a common trading scenario. The success of past TAC events has motivated broadening the scope of the competition beyond the context of the travel agent scenario used thus far. For the fourth edition of this competition, TAC-03, to be held in August 2003, the authors have created a novel supply-chain trading game with the aim of investigating automated agents in the context of dynamic supply-chain management.
