3rd International Aiwolf Contest

3rd International AIWolf Contest

Games are a great platform to develop Artificial Intelligence research. The social game Werewolf (aka Mafia) is a particularly difficult game for which no AI that can play at a strong level has been found yet. The difficulties of this game include the social factor, the communication based gameplay, and the necessity of modeling the internal belief state of all other agents


To promote research in Werewolf AI and move towards the solution to these challenges, we are holding the Third International Werewolf AI Competition (AIWolf Contest), in tandem with the Automated Negotiating Agents Competition (ANAC2021). The results will be announced at IJCAI 2021.


The goal of this competition is to develop an AI agent for the Werewolf game, that can perform reliably well against other AI agents. The competition has two sub divisions: In the Protocol Division, the agents communicate using a fixed artificial protocol. In the Natural Language division, the agents communicate in natural language texts (Japanese or English).

Protocol Division Information


Natural Language Division Information


In this division, participants must build an artificial intelligence agent that can play the werewolf game as humans do, using natural language. Participants in this division will be evaluated by a panel of judges, who will grade the subjective quality of the dialog generated by the agent. Agents must communicate in Japanese or English.
