FIPA-Based Semi-centralized Protocol for Negotiation

TLDR
A semi-centralized protocol is proposed to overcome the limitation of the existing protocols and enable robust and adaptable solution in a highly dynamic environment and shows significant improvement in time and communication overhead under various conditions.

Dynamic Re-Configuration of Conversationally Initiated Automated Negotiations

TLDR
This paper proposes a negotiation model supporting dynamic interactive preference post-specification and presents a Hybrid Alternating Offers Protocol for that purpose and demostrate it for conversationally initiated negotiations in the context of an app-market.

Strategies in Case-Based Argumentation-Based Negotiation: An Application for the Tourism Domain

TLDR
This paper treats the negotiations between a travel agency and its customers in the domain of tourism using two types of profiles, Argumentative profile that represents agents’ ways of reasoning and Preference profile that embodies customers’ preferences in thedomain of tourism.

A Survey and Future Vision of Double Auctions-Based Autonomous Cloud Service Negotiations

TLDR
It was identified that the surveyed double auction mechanisms were unable to address multi-attributes heterogeneous cloud services because it required a long execution time, Nevertheless, future vision managed to be suggested to solve these issues.

A New Generic Framework for Argumentation-Based Negotiation Using Case-Based Reasoning

TLDR
A new generic domain-independent framework based on both argumentation and Case-Based Reasoning as means of guiding the negotiation process to a settlement that overcomes the limits of domain-dependent frameworks is proposed.

An Overview of Current Multi-Attribute Techniques in Double Auction Frameworks

TLDR
It is found that the current multi-attributes techniques lacked in addressing the preferential dependency, selective attributes and utility optimization simultaneously in double auction frameworks and these concerns need to be addressed in order to devise a practical framework.

Highlights in Practical Applications of Agents, Multi-Agent Systems, and Trust-worthiness. The PAAMS Collection: International Workshops of PAAMS 2020, L'Aquila, Italy, October 7–9, 2020, Proceedings

TLDR
The entanglement among ethical and technological challenges is elaborates on while proposing and discussing approaches that address these emerging research opportunities.

Literature Survey on Enhancement of MOM for Intelligent Cross-Platform Communications in Service Oriented Architecture

TLDR
An intelligent cross-platform communications can be defined as the computer system that enables self-coordination to distribute computing resources and adaptive to the new environment while hiding fundamental complexity from the users.

An Extended Protocol for Multiple-Issue Concurrent Negotiation

TLDR
This protocol mitigates the situation where most one-to-many negotiations are biased in favor of one participating agent, and allow the negotiation participants to make durable commitments to reduce the decommitment situation.

An Extended Multi-Agent Negotiation Protocol

TLDR
A task allocation protocol that is efficient in time and tolerates crash failures in multi-agent systems and optimizes the length of the negotiation processes among agents is presented.

Automated Negotiation and Decision Making in Multiagent Environments

TLDR
This paper presents some of the key techniques for reaching agreements in multi-agent environments: strategic negotiation, auctions, coalition formation, market-oriented programming and contracting, and logical based mechanisms for argumentations.

Automated service negotiation between autonomous computational agents

TLDR
The central problem addressed in this thesis is the design and engineering of a negotiation model for autonomous agents for sharing tasks and/or resources and a negotiation protocol and a set of deliberation mechanisms are presented which together coordinate the actions of a multiple agent system.

Negotiation decision functions for autonomous agents

Negotiation among Autonomous Computational Agents

TLDR
A generic negotiation model for autonomous agents that handles multi-party, multi-issue and repeated rounds is presented, based on computationally tractable assumptions.

TLDR
This paper presents a novel heuristic model for coordinating multiple bilateral negotiations that is empirically evaluated and shown to be effective and robust in a range of negotiation scenarios.

Issues in Automated Negotiation and Electronic Commerce: Extending the Contract Net Framework

TLDR
A number of previously unaddressed issues that arise in automated negot/ation among self-interested agents whose rationality is bounded by computational complexity are discussed, and the implications of bounded rationality are analysed.

Reasoning about commitments in multiple concurrent negotiations

TLDR
This paper considers the situation in which a buyer agent is looking for a single service provider from a number of available ones in its environment and provides and evaluates a commitment manager and integrates it into the negotiation model.

Concurrent Multiple-Issue Negotiation for Internet-Based Services

TLDR
Colored Petri nets, which have greater expressive power than finite state machines and offer support for concurrency, represent the negotiation protocol and facilitate the analysis of desirable properties.
