Five teams participated in the Multi-Agent Programming Contest in 2013: All of them gained experience in 2012 already. In order to better understand which paradigms they used, which techniques they considered important and how much work they invested, the organisers of the contest compiled together a detailed list of questions (circa 50). This paper collects all answers to these questions as given by the teams. 
Multi-Agent Programming Contest 2013
TLDR
This is about the ninth edition of the Multi-Agent Programming Contest, an annual, community-serving competition that attracts groups from all over the world and supports educational efforts in the design and implementation of such systems.
Multi-agent programming contest 2017
TLDR
The twelfth edition of the Multi-Agent Programming Contest is presented, an annual, community-serving competition that attracts groups from all over the world and provides a concrete problem that is interesting in itself and well-suited to be tackled in educational environments.
The Multi-Agent Programming Contest: A résumé
TLDR
Previous editions of the Multi-Agent Programming Contest are presented and also its current scenario and results from its use in the 2019 MAPC with a special focus on its suitability.
The Multi-Agent Programming Contest 2018 - A Third Time in the City
TLDR
This time, five teams competed using strictly agent-based as well as traditional programming approaches, allowing for comparison of different multi-agent systems and also conventional approaches.
The Multi-Agent Programming Contest 2019: Agents Assemble – Block by Block to Victory
TLDR
Previous editions of the Multi-Agent Programming Contest are presented and also its current scenario and results from its use in the 2019 MAPC are presented, with a special focus on its suitability.
From Testing Agent Systems to a Scalable Simulation Platform
TLDR
The important conclusion is the need to move from academic prototypes to more seriously engineered software systems in order to support the uptake of academic research in industry.
The AORTA Reasoning Framework - Adding Organizational Reasoning to Agents
TLDR
This thesis claims that by using the AORTA reasoning framework, agents become organizationaware, and proposes a model that solves this problem by adding a filter to the agent’s decision procedure that takes consequences of fulfilling a goal into account before deciding to commit to it.
