The 12th international 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 Faculty of Engineering, advised by Assistant Professor Reyhan Aydoğan at Özyeğin University 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 Graduate School of Engineering and Science, 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 runner up prize with their team named Charlies' Agent in SCML league conducted in cooperation with the NEC-AIST, Japan.
We congratulate our students 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.
