The Supply Chain Management Game
John Collins*, Raghu Arunachalam, Norman Sadeh
Based on the positive experience with the 2006 trading agent competition, no technical changes have been made to the game for 2007. However, the position on the use of external information by the agents (i.e. that provided by the game viewer or the game logs) has been clarified. Using such information, either manually or automatically, is now regarded as external 'tuning' of the agent. As such, according to the existing competition rules, it is forbidden within any specific round during of finals of the competition.
