Arguments, Dialogue, and Negotiation

Leila Amgoud, Simon Parsons, Nicolas Maudet

In the past few years there have been a number of proposals for mechanisms for negotiation between agents that make use of argumentation. While stressing the representational advantages of an argumentation based approach, these proposals have largely been vague on the subject of how the generation and interpretation of arguments fits into the process of negotiation. In short, the protocol under which the argumentation takes place has been missing. This paper addresses this gap, proposing a particular protocol which is suitable for negotiation, and illustrating its use on an example from the literature.

Keywords: Multi-agent systems
