This is an extension from a selected paper from JSAI2019. Many researchers have focused on agent strategies in auto-negotiations. In this paper, we present a negotiating agent that can search for suitable bids that obtain high joint utility values near a Nash bargaining solution by using a novel bid searching strategy. The proposed agent finished in second place in the social welfare category in International Automated Negotiating Agents Competition (ANAC) 2018 and first place in the social…
