Software frameworks for advanced procurement auction markets

Martin Bichler, Jayant R. Kalagnanam
2006 Communications of the ACM  
As many organizations have begun to realize the efficacy of auctions, interest has emerged to extend basic auction types to support negotiations beyond price, and communicate bids with a more complex set  ...  The auctions close either at a fixed point in time or after a certain closing criterion is met (such as a certain time lapse).  ...  Allocation constraints are of high practical relevance and arise out of domain requirements.  ...

Johansson Christian, Wernstedt Fredrik, Davidsson Paul
2010 Computer Science and Information Systems  
Multi-agent cooperation can in several cases be used in order to mitigate problems relating to task sharing within physical processes.  ...  In this paper we apply agent based solutions to a class of problems defined by their property of being predictable from a macroscopic perspective while being highly stochastic when viewed at a microscopic  ...  In this paper we focus on a problem domain where multi-agent task sharing cooperative behavior is applied.  ...

Agent-Mediated Integrative Negotiation for Retail Electronic Commerce [chapter]

Robert H. Guttman, Pattie Maes
1999 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
Likewise, the increasingly popular online auctions pit sellers against buyers in distributive negotiation tug-of-wars over price.  ...  Finally, we identify promising techniques (e.g., multi-attribute utility theory, distributed constraint satisfaction, and conjoint analysis) for implementing agent-mediated integrative negotiation.  ...  Acknowledgements We would like to thank Alex Kleiner III, Fernanda Viegas, Natalia Marmasse, and Alexandros Moukas for their help with this paper.  ...

Towards real-time dynamic spectrum auctions

Sorabh Gandhi, Chiranjeeb Buragohain, Lili Cao, Haitao Zheng, Subhash Suri
2008 Computer Networks  
In this paper, we propose a low-complexity auction framework to distribute spectrum in real-time among a large number of wireless users with dynamic traffic.  ...  Any efficient spectrum auction system must consider demand and spectrum availability in local regions to maximize system-wide revenue and spectrum utilization.  ...  Acknowledgement The research of Sorabh Gandhi, Chiranjeeb Buragohain and Subhash Suri was supported in part by National Science Foundation grants CNS-0626954 and CCF-0514738.  ...

Auction-Based Mechanisms for Electronic Procurement

T. S. Chandrashekar, Y. Narahari, Charles H. Rosa, Devadatta M. Kulkarni, Jeffrey D. Tew, Pankaj Dayama
2007 IEEE Transactions on Automation Science and Engineering  
We discuss three categories: (1) multi-unit auctions for a single homogeneous type of item; (2) combinatorial procurement auctions where the buyer seeks to procure a bundle of multiple items and the suppliers  ...  This article reviews recent research and current art in the area of auction based mechanisms for electronic procurement.  ...  In this paper, our interest is in procurement auctions with a specific attention on three broad types: [a] Single item, single attribute procurement auctions (single unit or multiunit), [b] Multi-item,  ...

Clinching Auctions Beyond Hard Budget Constraints [article]

Gagan Goel and Vahab Mirrokni and Renato Paes Leme
2014 arXiv   pre-print
Constraints on agent's ability to pay play a major role in auction design for any setting where the magnitude of financial transactions is sufficiently large.  ...  Our result applies to a very general class of allocation constraints known as polymatroidal environments, encompassing many settings of interest such as multi-unit auctions, matching markets, video-on-demand  ...  Dobzinski et al [13] showed that even for the special case of multi-unit auctions with hard budget constraints, there is no incentive compatible, individually rational and Pareto-optimal auction if budgets  ...

An Analysis of Design Problems in Combinatorial Procurement Auctions

Martin Bichler, Alexander Pikovsky, Thomas Setzer
2009 Business & Information Systems Engineering  
In addition, procurement specialists need to consider several domain-specific requirements, such as additional side constraints as well as alternative multidimensional bid types.  ...  A number of fundamental design considerations are relevant to the application of combinatorial auctions in procurement.  ...  Auction design with complex bid types In the simplest case, a multi-item auction is designed to sell multiple identical units of an item.  ...

Resource Bartering in Data Grids

Can Özturan
2004 Scientific Programming  
We utilize directed hypergraphs to develop a barter model in which multiple resources can be traded. We prove that the decision version of the multi-resource bartering problem is NP-complete.  ...  We generalize our multi-resource bartering formulation to the case where multiple instances of resources are present.  ...  Double auction mechanisms can be used in barter exchanges in which barter units are employed to value (price) resources.  ...
