An Ontology-Based Architecture for Knowledge Commerce

K. Kafentzis, P. Georgolios, A. Bouras, G. Mentzas
2006 Proceedings of the 39th Annual Hawaii International Conference on System Sciences (HICSS'06)  
In our approach, we propose 'Knowledge Services' and k-UDDI, enhanced by reference ontologies we have developed, as a means to enable the publication, discovery, negotiation and invocation of web services  ...  Inter-organizational knowledge networks and knowledge marketplaces have emerged in order to enable organizations to share or commercially exploit their knowledge outside narrow organizational borders.  ...  The KSC template contains a variety of terms that are able to be negotiated with a prospective trading partner.  ...

Gregoris Mentzas, Kostas Kafentzis, Panos Georgolios
2007 Communications of the ACM  
This approach addresses the highly contextdependent nature of knowledge transactions and the need to support flexible negotiation mechanisms for online trading.  ...  Our approach follows a one-toone negotiation protocol enabling the bargaining of a variety of terms of a predefined contract template.  ...  To copy otherwise, to republish, to post on servers or to redistribute to lists, requires prior specific permission and/or a fee.  ...

Agent-based bilateral multi-issue negotiation scheme for e-market transactions

Yee Ming Chen, Pei-Ni Huang
2009 Applied Soft Computing  
An example application to negotiate a supplier selection among participants demonstrates to the agents how to adjust its negotiation issues parameters and reach its agreement.  ...  In the simplest case, the structure and contents of the agreement are fixed, and negotiation amounts to accepting or rejecting the offer.  ...

Market Structures for U.S. Water Quality Trading

Richard T. Woodward, Ronald A. Kaiser
2002 Review of Agricultural Economics  
Since market structure is largely determined by a program's rules, policy makers should be aware of the differences between these structures and the conditions under which each comes to be.  ...  Four main structures are identified: exchanges, bilateral negotiations, clearinghouses, and sole-source offsets.  ...  Acknowledgments Partial support for this research was provided by the Texas Natural Resources Conservation Commission (TNRCC) through a grant to the Center for Public Leadership Studies, George Bush School  ...

Catallaxy-based Grid markets

Torsten Eymann, Michael Reinicke, Werner Streitberger, Omer Rana, Liviu Joita, Dirk Neumann, Björn Schnizler, Daniel Veit, Oscar Ardaiz, Pablo Chacin, Isaac Chao, Felix Freitag (+10 others)
2005 Multiagent and Grid Systems  
To manage complexity, this article proposes a two-layer architecture for service discovery in such Application Layer Networks (ALN).  ...  Grid computing has recently become an important paradigm for managing computationally demanding applications, composed of a collection of services.  ...  In order to provide a benchmark, the decentralized approach is compared to a centrally defined market mechanism. The latter is deduced applying a structured Market Engineering approach.  ...

Trading and Negotiating Stream Bindings [chapter]

H. O. Rafaelsen, F. Eliassen
2000 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
We show how an earlier proposed type model for stream interfaces can be used as a basis for binding type selection, and extended to support automatic negotiation of binding properties.  ...  In this paper we discuss mechanisms for selecting and negotiating appropriate explicit stream bindings as required by the application.  ...  In this paper we present an approach for applications to select binding types and associated binding factories according to their needs based on a trading model.  ...

An Ontology Based Approach to Automated Negotiation [chapter]

Valentina Tamma, Michael Wooldridge, Ian Blacoe, Ian Dickinson
2002 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
The paper describes the negotiation ontology and provides a walkthrough example describing how the approach based on the negotiation ontology could be applied to the trading agent competition scenario.  ...  This paper presents a novel approach to automated negotiation that is particularly suitable to open environments, such as the Internet.  ...  The authors would like to wish their gratitude to Steve Phelps for his comments and suggestions on the approach presented in this paper.  ...

Subsidiarity between Economic Freedom and Harmonized Regulation: Is there an Optimal Degree of European Integration?

Michael Gilroy, Heike Schreckenberg, Volker Seiler
2013 Federal Governance  
When applying this to the EU's economic union, one might assume that the decentralization of trading structures as well as the ensuring of national economic freedoms are basic necessities for a reliable  ...  Nevertheless, with view to the sustained enlargement of the European Single Market, it seems that the centralization of trading structures has not lost its attractiveness yet.  ...  However, the paper at hand only provides a first theoretical approach with view to the principle of 'dual subsidiarity'.  ...
