Abstract

The Automated Negotiating Agents Competition is an international event that, since 2010, has contributed to the evaluation and development of new techniques and benchmarks for improving the state of the art in automated multi-issue negotiation. A key objective of the competition has been to analyze and search the design space of negotiating agents for agents that are able to operate effectively across a variety of domains. The competition is a valuable tool for studying important aspects of negotiation including profiles and domains, opponent learning, strategies, and bilateral and multilateral protocols. Two of the challenges that remain are how to develop argumentation-based negotiation agents that, in addition to making offers, can inform and argue to obtain an acceptable agreement for both parties; and how to create agents that can negotiate in a human fashion.
