The leasing of idle computing resources over the net is one way to motivate more participants to join the grid computation initiative. Since the participating parties are independent bodies, negotiation activities are required. In this research, we propose a new automated negotiation mechanism that allows each party to reach an agreement. The mechanism(More)
The problems associated with current automated negotiation approaches are of little feasibility in practical industry applications. This paper describes a new method that combines a game theory approach and a co-evolutionary approach to support an effective negotiation model for agents to resolve conflict.

It is not uncommon for negotiating agents to involve complex utility functions in the negotiation process. To search for an optimised solution in a large and complex space can be very time consuming. The choice of appropriate parameter settings for searching methods can have significant impact on the negotiation result. In this paper, we report a series of(More)
