ABSTRACT
We present the ARES 2 system, a simulator of a city struck by an earthquake to be used as testbed for agents written as assignment of a basic multi-agent systems course. We briefly present the structure of this basic course, look at ARES 2 from the perspective of an instructor, a student having to implement agents running in it, and a system developer. We also report on our experiences in using first ARES and then ARES 2 in 4 courses.
