Mechanisms for Automated Negotiation in State Oriented Domains [article]

G. Zlotkin, J. S. Rosenschein
1996 arXiv   pre-print
We define State Oriented Domains, a general category of interaction. Necessary and sufficient conditions for cooperation are outlined.  ...  This paper lays part of the groundwork for a domain theory of negotiation, that is, a way of classifying interactions so that it is clear, given a domain, which negotiation mechanisms and strategies are  ...  This research began while Zlotkin was a liated with the Institute of Computer Science at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, and was supported by the Leibniz Center for Research in Computer Science.  ...

A Review of Rules of Encounter: Designing Conventions for Automated Negotiation

Piotr J. Gmytrasiewicz
1995 The AI Magazine  
Here, agents can use the unified negotiation protocol that was defined previously for state-oriented domains.  ...  In state-oriented domains, each agent has to move the world from a given initial state to one of the set of given goal states for this agent.  ...

Supporting the Design of General Automated Negotiators [chapter]

Raz Lin, Sarit Kraus, Dmytro Tykhonov, Koen Hindriks, Catholijn M. Jonker
2010 Studies in Computational Intelligence  
However, due to difficulties involved in creating generalized agents that can negotiate in several domains and against human counterparts, many automated negotiators are domain specific and their behavior  ...  In this paper we present a system that enables alleviation of the difficulties in the design process of general automated negotiators termed GENIUS, a General Environment for Negotiation with Intelligent  ...  The second mechanism is a repository of domains and utility functions. Lastly, it also comprises repositories of automated negotiators.  ...

Automatic Service Agreement Negotiators in Open Commerce Environments

Manuel Resinas, Pablo Fernández, Rafael Corchuelo
2010 International Journal of Electronic Commerce  
These contributions can be used to support future efforts of practitioners and researchers in automated negotiation by setting the basis on which new software frameworks for automated negotiation systems  ...  We have used this catalogue to compare eleven state-of-the-art software frameworks side-by-side, and the conclusion was that none of them is well suited for negotiating service agreements in open commerce  ...  Acknowledgements We are deeply indebted to our referees and editor for providing so much insight in early drafts of this article.  ...

Negotiating with bounded rational agents in environments with incomplete information using an automated agent

Raz Lin, Sarit Kraus, Jonathan Wilkenfeld, James Barry
2008 Artificial Intelligence  
In this paper we propose a model for an automated negotiation agent capable of negotiating with bounded rational agents under conditions of incomplete information.  ...  We test this agent against people in two distinct domains, in order to verify that its model is generic, and thus can be adapted to any domain as long as the negotiators' preferences can be expressed in  ...  To achieve this, we incorporated two mechanisms in the automated agent.  ...

A Generic Platform for Conducting SLA Negotiations [chapter]

Edwin Yaqub, Philipp Wieder, Constantinos Kotsokalis, Valentina Mazza, Liliana Pasquale, Juan Lambea Rueda, Sergio García Gómez, Augustín Escámez Chimeno
2011 Service Level Agreements for Cloud Computing  
In this chapter, we observe the state of the art on negotiations and introduce the generic negotiation platform developed for the SLA@SOI framework.  ...  In service-oriented systems, negotiating service level agreements (SLAs) occupies a central role in the service usage cycle.  ...  Domain agnosticity of the Protocol Engine, combined with domain sensitivity of the negotiation protocols, allow SLA@SOI to achieve a generic mechanism for conducting automatic negotiations among various  ...
