Abstract

The third Automated Negotiating Agents Competition (ANAC 2012) was held at the 11th International Conference on Autonomous Agents and Multiagent Systems (AAMAS 2012, Valencia, Spain). ANAC is an international competition that aims to encourage research into bilateral, multi-issue negotiation, by providing a platform in which strategies developed independently by different research teams can be tried and compared against each other, in a real-time competition. In the 2012 edition, we received 17 entries from 9 different universities worldwide, out of which 8 were selected for the final round. This chapter aims to provide a broad description of the competition set-up (especially highlighting the changes from previous editions), the preference domains and the strategies submitted, as well as the results from both the qualifying and final rounds.
