The course discusses new and established research in multiagent systems. Based on formal grounding in game theory and mechanism design, different interaction situations that autonomous agents have to solve are discussed for both, cooperative and antagonistic settings: task allocation and coordination in cooperative systems; social choice (voting), auctions and markets, negotiation and coalition formation for egoistic agents.
The course will be offered during the period October 6, 2023 - January 12, 2024. The course runs in parallel with the SMARTer course on DAI/MAS.
There are three obligatory seminars: Kick Off seminar October 6 (09:15-13:00), Paper Seminar November 10 (09:15-TBA), Final Seminar January 12 (09:15-TBA). The Voluntary Catchup Seminar is on December 8 (09:15 - TBA).
While the first seminar is a kickoff meeting, the second contains presentations based on literature, and the third a presentation of the students concept. In addition, there are a number of assignments to be done.
