Description/Abstract

The need for negotiation in multi-agent systems stems from the requirement for agents to solve the problems posed by their interdependence on one another. Negotiation provides a solution to these problems by giving the agents the means to resolve their conflicting objectives, correct inconsistencies in their knowledge of other agents' world view, a coordinate a joint approach to domain tasks which benefits all the agents concerned. We propose a framework, based upon a system of argumentation, which permits agents to negotiate to establish acceptable ways to solve problems.
