C-IPS: Specifying Decision Interdependencies in Negotiations [chapter]

Kay Schröter, Diemo Urbig
2004 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
Our C-IPS approach considers these three aspects as separate decision processes. It requires an explicit specification of interdependencies between them.  ...  In this article we address the task of specifying the dynamic interdependencies by means of IPS dynamics.  ...  These constraints are not domain dependent and are not implied by the C-IPS framework. Rather the C-IPS framework allows specifying the negotiation process for many different constraints.  ...

Negotiating agents

Diemo Urbig, Kay Schröter
2005 Proceedings of the fourth international joint conference on Autonomous agents and multiagent systems - AAMAS '05  
The modularization of negotiating agents as proposed by the C-IPS approach provides a sound base for a concept that we call dynamic degrees of delegation.  ...  Agents following this concept enable their users at runtime to delegate particular subsets of decision to their artificial agents.  ...  C-IPS AGENT SPECIFICATION The C-IPS approach [1] proposes a modularization of the decision component of negotiating agents and requires an explicit specification of the dynamic interdependencies between  ...

Agents Enacting Social Roles. Balancing Formal Structure and Practical Rationality in MAS Design [chapter]

Martin Meister, Diemo Urbig, Kay Schröter, Renate Gerstl
2005 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
Our application scenario are negotiations on shift exchanges in a hospital (for details see [34, 23] ).  ...  In the next sections we introduce in some detail (4.) our sociologically grounded modelling of practical roles and negotiating agents and (5.) our framework for a corresponding MAS-architecture.  ...  The C-IPS as a General BDI-based Architecture It can be assumed that in our domain, as well as in every other negotiation, agents have to make decisions about three important aspects: They have to choose  ...

Meta-level Coordination for Solving Distributed Negotiation Chains in Semi-cooperative Multi-agent Systems

Xiaoqin Shelley Zhang, Victor Lesser
2012 Group Decision and Negotiation  
In order to appropriately order and structure the negotiations occurring in the chain so as to optimize the expected utility, we present an extension to a single-agent concurrent negotiation framework.  ...  This more accurate model helps the agent in choosing a better negotiation solution for a distributed negotiation chain problem.  ...  Urbig and Schroter (2004) introduced C-IPS approach for negotiation agents for specifying dynamic interdependencies between issues, partners and steps.  ...

The Effect of Customer Empowerment on Adherence to Expert Advice

Nuno M.A. Camacho, Martijn G. de Jong, S. Stremersch
2014 Social Science Research Network  
In this article, we distinguish informational from decisional empowerment and study whether empowerment leads customers to adhere more or less to expert advice.  ...  A noble stance taken by some is that experts should empower customers to make their own decisions.  ...  We specify our measurement equations relating the latent endogenous constructsunintentional non-adherence (UNA) and reasoned non-adherence (RNA)to the observed responses as follows: c ip i c p c ip c ip  ...

I(Re)2-WiNoC: Exploring scalable wireless on-chip micronetworks for heterogeneous embedded many-core SoCs

Dan Zhao, Yi Wang, Hongyi Wu, Takamaro Kikkawa
2015 Digital Communications and Networks  
In this work, an irregular and reconfigurable WiNoC platform is proposed to tackle ever increasing complexity, density and heterogeneity challenges.  ...  The main advantage lies in the exploitation of parallelism, distributively and massively. Consequently, the on-chip communication fabric becomes the performance determinant.  ...  Each disk D i is centered at a RF node with a radius of R c that covers a set of N c IP cores C ¼ fC j jjA N c g embedded on the Euclidean chip plane.  ...

The effect of customer empowerment on adherence to expert advice

Nuno Camacho, Martijn De Jong, Stefan Stremersch
2014 International Journal of Research in Marketing  
In this article, we distinguish informational from decisional empowerment and study whether empowerment leads customers to adhere more or less to expert advice.  ...  A noble stance taken by some is that experts should empower customers to make their own decisions.  ...  At each draw in our MCMC chain, we computed the averages and the standard deviations of the posterior means of the depicted structural paths across all countries in our sample.  ...

Reflection and Norms: Towards a Method for Dynamic Adaptation for MAS

Ingo Timm, Andreas Lattner, René Schumann
In this paper we present a methodology that can be integrated into MAS for adapting their behavior allowing local optimization while respecting an acceptable level of the system's global goals.  ...  The work is based on the C-IPS approach which addresses different aspects of negotiation decisions in agents (C-IPS stands for external constraints (C), negotiation issues (I), partners (P), and negotiation  ...  Barber and Martin [13] define and measure autonomy as the interdependency of an agent in its decision making to achieve its goals.  ... 

A Self-Tuning Procedure for Resource Management in InterCloud Computing

Suleiman Onimisi Aliyu, Feng Chen, Han Li
2016 2016 IEEE International Conference on Software Quality, Reliability and Security Companion (QRS-C)  
The focus of this paper is to propose a Software Cybernetic approach, in the form of an adaptive control framework, for efficient management of shared resources in peer-to-peer InterCloud computing.  ...  This research effort adopts cooperative game theory to model resource management in InterCloud.  ...  On the other hand, if Clouds' resource failure is low (PFGsetting), It is necessary to search every partition : C.  ...
