Updates of the knowledge base are left implicit. In figure 1, boxes labeled SELECT, PROPOSE, and MODIFY(Q) as well as agreement and failure criteria are not made explicit. Although it is not too complicated to define, for space reasons we will not deal with this in the paper. Phase 2: Explaining All Possible Message Sequences. Now the design of the negotiation protocol really takes place. Let us begin with conveying possible message sequences according to the agents’ behavior and messages that are to be used.

Indeed, what follows forms an important part of the specification of the protocol of the negotiation. We can distinguish between: – – – – bid validity; bid visibility; clearing schedule and timeouts; and quotes schedule. The first item specifies an important part of the protocol: the criteria for validity of the bids. To be valid, bids often have to be offered at an appropriate time and must satisfy some constraints on their value. For example, in an English auction bids can be made when the auctioneer is calling for bids and must be progressively higher in value.

We will deal with these two protocol levels: simple and rather constrained protocols, where a request awaits an answer or another request for instance; and, protocols of a higher level corresponding more to negotiation phases. As in Paurobally and Cunningham’s Chapter, negotiation protocols are viewed here as a set of public rules that dictate the conduct of an agent towards other agents when carrying out some negotiation. Agents involved in the same negotiation need to comply to a common negotiation protocol to ensure that they and all other participants following the same rule will coordinate meaningfully.
