Interest Based Negotiation Automation
The negotiation in general sense, as one of the most fundamental and powerful interaction of human beings, represents the dynamic process of exchanging information and perspectives towards mutual understanding and agreements. Interest based negotiation allows negotiators to discuss the concerns behind the negotiation issues so that a mutually acceptable win-win solution is more likely to be reached. This paper, for the first time, proposes a computational model for interest based negotiation automation which enables the automation of the fundamental elements of negotiation. Based on the model, algorithms are designated to automate the fundamental elements with practical computational complexity. This model provides not only a theoretical foundation for software agent based negotiation automation, but also a practical approach.
