e-Negotiation Systems for e-Participation

  • Morad Benyoucef
Part of the Advances in Group Decision and Negotiation book series (AGDN, volume 5)


This chapter presents e-negotiation systems and discusses their design issues. It also introduces and argues for a service-oriented design approach and framework which foster the design, development, and deployment of e-negotiation systems that meet the requirements of e-participation.
