A methodology for 3D electronic institutions

A. Bogdanovych, M. Esteva, S. Simoff, C. Sierra, H. Berger
2007 Proceedings of the 6th international joint conference on Autonomous agents and multiagent systems - AAMAS '07  
In this paper we propose a methodology for the construction of 3D electronic institutions. 3D electronic institutions are nonnative environments where software and human agents can participate and collaborate  ...  The resulting system facilitates the direct integration of human users into lvlulti-Agent Systems as they participate by driving an avatar in the generated 3D environment.  ...  Acknow ledgernents The research reported in this paper is partially supported by the ARC Discovery Project DP0451692 "The Evolution of Business Networks in Virtual Marketplaces''.  ...

Adaptive Electronic Institutions for Negotiations [chapter]

Manolis Sardis, George Vouros
2009 IFIP Advances in Information and Communication Technology  
Viewing negotiation structures as electronic institutions, this paper investigates the impact of a dynamically changing environment to negotiations' electronic institutions.  ...  Electronic institutions can play an "umbrella" role for agents' transactions, where institutions' norms could protect and support movements and decisions made through negotiations.  ...  The external info and news adaptability using multi agent systems and through the eIs are an add-on for the electronic negotiations.  ...
