We would like to thank all teams for a great competition! Without such a great community Power TAC would be meaningless! 

Thanks to John Collins, Govert Buijs, and Erik Kemperman! Without them we would not be able to run the competition in such a professional manner! Thanks again! 
We are looking forward to read great papers on the competition, agent strategies, and business models!
