Neogotiation Through Argumentation - A Preliminary Report

Parsons, S. D. and Jennings, N. R. (1996) Neogotiation Through Argumentation - A Preliminary Report At 2nd Int. Conf. on Multi-Agent Systems, Japan. , pp. 267-274.

Record type: Conference or Workshop Item (Paper)


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.
