%0 Conference Proceedings %A Ortiz, C.L. and Hsu, E. %T Structured Negotiation %B First International Conference on Autonomous Agents and Multiagent Systems %D 2002 %K Negotiation, collaboration, planning, communication. %X Structured negotiation is proposed as a new method through which collaborating agents can seek consensus on the apportionment of tasks and resources. The approach draws on research in collaborative planning and human dialog understanding: agent interactions are organized in a manner that reflects the structure of a shared plan. Negotiations are incremental and interleaved with the shared planning process while communications supporting negotiations are made efficient by drawing on knowledge of a prevailing context. Agent proposals to team members are annotated with causal information that compactly expresses relationships between new proposals and the current context. Normative guidelines for proposal generation further restrict communications of ancillary information to only those fragments that represent departures from the norm. Finally, a set of interpretation rules allows agents to infer information not explicitly communicated. %U http://www.ai.sri.com/pubs/files/859.ps
