Abstract: We present the 11th edition of the multi-agent programming contest, an annual, community-serving competition that attracts groups from all over the world. Our contest enables head-to-head comparison of multi-agent systems and supports educational efforts in their design and implementation. The long-term aim is to evaluate the specific features of agent programming languages and to compare them to more traditional languages.

Keywords: multi-agent systems; programming contest; multi-agent simulation; MAS; programming competition; MAS benchmark; MAS comparison; agent-oriented software engineering.
