Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingArticle in proceedingsResearchpeer-review


We describe the solution used by the Python-DTU team in the Multi-Agent Programming Contest 2011, where the scenario was called Agents on Mars. We present our auction-based agreement algorithm and discuss our chosen strategy and our choice of technology used for implementing the system. Finally, we present an analysis of the results of the competition as well as propose areas of improvement.
