Williams, Colin R., Robu, Valentin, Gerding, Enrico H. and Jennings, Nicholas R., (2010) IAMhaggler: A Negotiation Agent for Complex Environments Ito, Takayuki, Zhang, Minjie, Robu, Valentin, Fatima, Shaheen and Matsuo, Tokuro (eds.) In New Trends in Agent-Based Complex Automated Negotiations. vol. 383, Springer-Verlag. 8 pp, pp. 151-158. (doi:10.1007/978-3-642-24696-8_10).

Record type: Conference or Workshop Item (Paper)


We describe the strategy used by our agent, IAMhaggler, which finished in third place in the 2010 Automated Negotiating Agent Competition. It uses a concession strategy to determine the utility level at which to make offers. This concession strategy uses a principled approach which considers the offers made by the opponent. It then uses a Pareto-search algorithm combined with Bayesian learning in order to generate a multi-issue offer with a specific utility as given by its concession strategy.
