In May 2015, we organized the Sixth International Automated Negotiating Agents Competition (ANAC 2015) in conjunction with AAMAS 2015. ANAC is an international competition that challenges researchers to develop a successful automated negotiator for scenarios where there is incomplete information about the opponent. One of the goals of this competition is to help steer the research in the area of multi-issue negotiations, and to encourage the design of generic negotiating agents that are able to operate in a variety of scenarios. 24 teams from 9 different institutes competed in ANAC 2015. This chapter describes the participating agents and the setup of the tournament, including the different negotiation scenarios that were used in the competition. We report on the results of the qualifying and final round of the tournament.
