Peer-to-peer (P2P) energy trading and energy communities have garnered much attention over in recent years due to increasing investments in local energy generation and storage assets. Much research has been performed on the mechanisms and methodologies behind their implementation and realisation. However, the efficiency to be gained from P2P...

This paper introduces a negotiation framework to solve the Multi-Agent Path Finding (MAPF) Problem for self-interested agents in a decentralized fashion. The framework aims to achieve a good trade-off between the privacy of the agents and the effectiveness of solutions. Accordingly, a token-based bilateral negotiation protocol and two...

Negotiation is not a skill that comes naturally to most people. However, most people could benefit from attaining good negotiation skills. Non-verbal behaviour plays an important role in negotiations. Previous studies have shown a link between mimicry through conversational agents and self-regulation of non-verbal behaviour. The current study...

With the prevalence of artificial intelligence recently, more attention is being drawn towards the collaboration between humans and agents. Across the many fields where such an agent can be employed, we are going to specifically examine the domain of negotiation. A critical part to ensure success in this human-agent collaboration is to establish...

Trust in negotiation agents plays a crucial role in their adoption and utilization. However, there is not enough research on what factors influence it. This paper aims to investigate how different explanations of a negotiation agent’s strategy affect human trust and decision-making. Specifically, it compares the effects of a truthful explanation...

This research experiment aimed to investigate the level of trust placed in an AI negotiation assistant paired with a truthful explanation of their negotiation strategy versus an opposite explanation within the Pocket Negotiator platform. A between-user study involving 30 participants was conducted to assess participants’ trust perceptions based...

Negotiations have an essential role in our lives as they help us to find mutually beneficial solutions and resolve conflicts. It leads to effective communication and collaboration between the involved parties. Negotiation among parties has high importance to have an outcome that is suitable for all. In such scenarios, negotiation agents can be...

Negotiation is a challenging process for people, which often results in suboptimal agreements between the negotiating parties. This issue leads to lost benefits that one of the negotiating parties could have obtained. To counteract this drawback artificially intelligent negotiation agents are developed. Their goal is to help negotiating parties...

Negotiation Support Systems (NSSs) can provide help based on the preference setting (domain, issue weights, issue ranking, strategies, etc.) of the users of the systems. However, sometimes the users of the systems might make mistakes in the preference setting. With wrong preferences, the NSSs might provide suggestions that conflict with the...

Context - Globally, there is climate change that affects life of people and nature on earth. The built environment is responsible for nearly 40% of global energy consumption and approximately onethird of global CO² emissions (JLL, 2020). Therefore, the built environment must become more sustainable. Public and private parties incorporate...

Priorities in multi-criteria decision-making (MCDM) convey the relevance preference of one criterion over another, which is usually reflected by imposing the non-negativity and unit-sum constraints. The processing of such priorities is different than other unconstrained data, but this point is often neglected by researchers, which results in...

Day by day, human-agent negotiation becomes more and more vital to reach a socially beneficial agreement when stakeholders need to make a joint decision together. Developing agents who understand not only human preferences but also attitudes is a significant prerequisite for this kind of interaction. Studies on opponent modeling are...

In agent-based negotiations, it is crucial to understand the opponent’s behavior and predict its bidding pattern to act strategically. Foreseeing the utility of the opponent’s coming offer provides valuable insight to the agent so that it can decide its next move wisely. Accordingly, this paper addresses predicting the opponent’s coming...

Channel allocation in dense Wi-Fi networks is a complex problem due to its nonlinear and exponentially sized solution space. Negotiating over this domain is a challenge, since it is difficult to estimate opponent’s utility. Based on our previous work in mediated techniques, we propose the first two fully-distributed multi-agent negotiations...

This paper presents the negotiation support mechanisms provided by the Pocket Negotiator (PN) and an elaborate empirical evaluation of the economic decision support (EDS) mechanisms during the bidding phase of negotiations as provided by the PN. Some of these support mechanisms are offered actively, some passively. With passive support we...

This paper introduces a dependency analysis and a categorization of conceptualized and existing economic decision support mechanisms for negotiation. The focus of our survey is on economic decision support mechanisms, although some behavioural support mechanisms were included, to recognize the important work in that area. We categorize...

The International Automated Negotiating Agent Competition introduces a new challenge each year to facilitate the research on agent-based negotiation and provide a test benchmark. ANAC 2020 addressed the problem of designing effective agents that do not know their users’ complete preferences in addition to their opponent’s negotiation strategy...

Channel allocation in dense, decentralized Wi-Fi networks is a challenging due to the highly nonlinear solution space and the difficulty to estimate the opponent’s utility model. So far, only centralized or mediated approaches have succeeded in applying negotiation to this setting. We propose the first two fully-distributed negotiation...

Automated negotiation is a key form of interaction in systems composed of multiple autonomous agents with different preferences. Such interactions aim to reach agreements through an iterative process of making offers. With the growth of Peer-to-Peer (P2P) energy markets due to the development and deployment of a variety of small-scale...

Peer-to-peer trading and energy communities have garnered much attention over the last few years due to the wider spread of distributed energy resources. Much research has been performed on the mechanisms and methodologies behind their implementation and realisation. However, the efficiency and micro-structure of trading in such markets raise...
