This paper describes an application of a distributed knowledge-based multi-agent architecture to support automated negotiation between and within virtual enterprises (VE). Considering constraints of traditional negotiation approaches (predetermined protocols as well as hard-coded and non-adaptive strategies), we combine the agent paradigm with ontology-based solutions to overcome these limitations. Our negotiation ontology, used by agents, acts as a general framework that defines the basic… CONTINUE READING
