The international Multi-Agent Programming Contest (MAPC), is a community-serving effort 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. The tournament platform, MASSim, is freely available and we encourage everybody to download it and use it in the classroom
