Abstract

Reframing is a sub-type of interest-based negotiation strategy that enhances bargaining by allowing the negotiators to ask for the underlying goal of the negotiation and propose alternative plan(s) which may entail a deal on alternative issues. This paper (i) presents a negotiation protocol that support both alternate offers monotonic bargaining and refraining and (ii) gives a fully computational and reproducible specification of bargaining and reframing capable negotiation agents using the 3APL agent language. © Springer-Verlag Berlin Heidelberg 2006.
