Agents That Reason and Negotiate by Arguing
TLDR
A framework, based upon a system of argumentation, which permits agents to negotiate in order to establish acceptable ways of solving problems and describes a case study of this relationship for a particular class of architectures (namely those for belief-desire-intention agents). Expand
Weighted argument systems: Basic definitions, algorithms, and complexity results
TLDR
A natural extension of Dung's well-known model of argument systems in which attacks are associated with a weight, indicating the relative strength of the attack is introduced, and a framework of weighted argument systems is presented. Expand
A Framework for Argumentation-Based Negotiation
TLDR
A general framework for negotiation in which agents exchange proposals backed by arguments which summarise the reasons why the proposals should be accepted is described. Expand
A Generalization of Dung's Abstract Framework for Argumentation: Arguing with Sets of Attacking Arguments
TLDR
This paper proposes a generalization of the framework of Dung, which allows for sets of arguments to attack other arguments, and proves that all results in the paper by Dung have an equivalent in this more abstract framework. Expand
Argumentation-based negotiation
TLDR
This article provides a conceptual framework through which the core elements and features required by agents engaged in argumentation-based negotiation, as well as the environment that hosts these agents are outlined, and surveys and evaluates existing proposed techniques in the literature. Expand
Arguments, Dialogue, and Negotiation
TLDR
A particular protocol which is suitable for negotiation is proposed, and its use is illustrated on an example from the literature, showing how the generation and interpretation of arguments fits into the process of negotiation. Expand
The eightfold way of deliberation dialogue
TLDR
This work presents the first formal framework for deliberation dialogues, grounding it in a theory of deliberative reasoning from the philosophy of argumentation, and fully articulate the locutions and rules of a formal dialogue game for this model. Expand
Auctions and bidding: A guide for computer scientists
TLDR
This article surveys the literature on auctions from a computer science perspective, primarily from the viewpoint of computer scientists interested in learning about auction theory, and provides pointers into the economics literature for those who want a deeper technical understanding. Expand
Desiderata for agent argumentation protocols
TLDR
A set of desiderata for dialogue game protocols for agent interactions is proposed, drawing on recent research in agent interaction, on recent criteria for assessment of automated auction mechanisms and on elements of argumentation theory and political theory. Expand
