Federico Chesani, Marco Gavanelli, Marco Alberti, Evelina Lamma, Paola Mello, Paolo Torroni
2006 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
Amongst several fundamental aspects in multi-agent systems design, the definition of the agent interaction space is of the utmost importance.  ...  Within the SOCS (Societies Of ComputeeS) project, a language based on abductive semantics has been proposed as a mean to define interactions in open societies.  ...  The Social Integrity Constraints Social Integrity Constraints are a set of implications that relate the current history with the expected behaviour.  ...

Aspects of Mechanism Design for Industry 4.0 Multi-Robot Task Auctioning

Ajay Kattepur, Sourav Khemkha
2021 EAI Endorsed Transactions on Smart Cities  
In this paper, we study the effect of varying bidding auction mechanism design protocols to result in multi-agent task auctioning.  ...  Multiple realistic auction/bidding scenarios considered including selfish agents, erroneous estimates of temporal features, heterogeneous capacities and composite bids.  ...  Systematic techniques are needed to model the interactions, constraints and the resultant outcome of such system constraints.  ...

Standardizing Interactive Pricing for Electronic Business

Michael Schwind, Oliver Hinz, Tim Stockheim, Martin Bernhardt
2008 Electronic Markets  
Combinatorial expressions are a powerful means to express causalities in bids, whereas the impact of combinatorial bids (or bundle bids) on the complexity of the mechanism depends on the number of dependencies  ...  The second main category of the scheme in Figure 2 is the bidding policy and includes the branch expressiveness, which in our case is combinatorial.  ...

Due-Date Management Through Iterative Bidding

Chun Wang, Zhiguo Wang, Hamada H. Ghenniwa, Weiming Shen
2011 IEEE transactions on systems, man and cybernetics. Part A. Systems and humans  
We study the integrated due date management in an economic setting where customers are modeled as self-interested agents and the objective of the firm is to maximize social welfare.  ...  However, given limited production capacity and various cost constraints, the firm has to balance the attractiveness of their due date quotations and the reliability in terms of scheduling and delivering  ...  For 2 We approach the integrated DDM from a social-welfare perspective.  ...

Ecosystem Services Auctions: The Last Decade of Research

Logan Robert Bingham, Riccardo Da Re, José G. Borges
2021 Forests  
To take stock of the current state of the art, we conducted a systematic review and thematic content analysis of 56 peer-reviewed journal articles discussing ES auctions published in the last decade.  ...  Auctions were approached from three overlapping perspectives: mechanism design, PES, and policy analysis.  ...  In addition to NOBEL, this project benefitted from close interactions with the SINCERE project (H2020 GA 773702) and support from the Forest Research Center Project UIDB/00239/2020, and the BIOECOSYS project  ...

Computationally-efficient combinatorial auctions for resource allocation in weakly-coupled MDPs

Dmitri Dolgov, Edmund Durfee
2005 Proceedings of the fourth international joint conference on Autonomous agents and multiagent systems - AAMAS '05  
In particular, generalized Vickrey auctions (GVAs) yield socially optimal outcomes and have excellent strategic complexity, but suffer from high computational complexity for the agents' preference-valuation  ...  Combinatorial auctions are popular mechanisms for allocating resource bundles among agents with such complex preferences.  ...  Then, P a xia gives the total expected discounted flow through state i, and the constraints in the above LP can be interpreted as the conservation of flow through each of the states.  ...
