A unified framework for multi-agent agreement

Kiran Lakkaraju, Les Gasser
2007 Proceedings of the 6th international joint conference on Autonomous agents and multiagent systems - AAMAS '07  
We present such a unification, the Distributed Optimal Agreement Framework, and show how it captures a wide variety of agreement problems.  ...  While much work has been done on particular agreement problems, no unifying framework exists for comparing MAPs that vary in, e.g., strategy space complexity, inter-agent accessibility, and solution type  ...  DOA FRAMEWORK The Distributed Optimal Agreement framework comprises a specification of a problem and a specification of the dynamics of the agents in solving that problem.  ...

Sklar's Omega: A Gaussian Copula-Based Framework for Assessing Agreement [article]

John Hughes
2018 arXiv   pre-print
We propose Sklar's Omega, a Gaussian copula-based framework for measuring intra-coder, inter-coder, and inter-method agreement as well as agreement relative to a gold standard.  ...  The statistical measurement of agreement is important in a number of fields, e.g., content analysis, education, computational linguistics, biomedical imaging.  ...  Conclusion Sklar's ω offers a flexible, principled, complete framework for doing statistical inference regarding agreement.  ...

A value-based framework for internet peering agreements

Amogh Dhamdhere, Constantine Dovrolis, Pierre Francois
2010 2010 22nd International Teletraffic Congress (lTC 22)  
We propose a quantitative framework for settlement-free and paid-peering links, based on the "value" of a peering link, i.e., the benefit that networks see from that link.  ...  We first study a solution where a centralized oracle determines a provably stable, optimal and fair price for a paid-peering link, based on perfect knowledge of the revenues and costs of each network.  ...  CONCLUSIONS We proposed a quantitative, value-based framework for Internet peering agreements.  ...

A Framework for Negotiating Service Level Agreement of Cloud-based Services

Radwa El-Awadi, Mohamed Abu-Rizka
2015 Procedia Computer Science  
Therefore, a legal contract is necessarily needed for negotiating these both Cloud parties. This contract is referred to Service Level Agreement (SLA).  ...  This proposed framework aims to formalize the SLA with precise and unambiguous definition of services key performance indicators (KPIs) to support automated negotiation on the details of the agreement  ...  For instance, Keller, A., & Ludwig, H. [9] presented a Web Service Level Agreement (WSLA) that intended to develop flexible SLA specification and monitoring framework that focuses on web-services.  ...

Using a MILP model to establish a framework for an annualised hours agreement

Albert Corominas, Amaia Lusa, Rafael Pastor
2007 European Journal of Operational Research  
To take the human aspect into account, the planning and scheduling of working time should comply with constraints derived from the law or from a collective bargaining agreement.  ...  Production flexibility is essential for industrial companies that have to deal with seasonal demand. Human resources are one of the main sources of flexibility.  ...  Subsequent sections of this paper show how a MILP model could be used to establish a framework for collective bargaining in order to introduce annualised hours in a company.  ...
