Negotiations in Multi-Agent Systems Using FIPA Standards
Languages of publication
The key standards for negotiation in multi agent systems are considered. Multiagent systems represent one of the most promising technological paradigms for the development of autonomous, distributed, open and intelligent software systems. Particularly because the agents are autonomous and cannot be assumed to be benevolent negotiation is critical to resolve conflicts. Examples of conflicts include conflicts over the usage of joint resources or task assignments and conflicts between a buyer and a seller in electronic commerce. The process of negotiations may be of many different forms, such as auctions, protocols in the style of the contract net, and argumentation. The paper focuses on the analysis of specification standards provided by FIPA (Foundation of Intelligent Physical Agents). The first part of the study will present basic information about the negotiations in multi-agent systems. For this purpose, will be shown the importance of negotiations in modeling interactions software agents, types of messages used in multi-agent systems using standard FIPA ACL and options for online auctions, which can be aided by software agents. The second part will present the commonly used protocols consistent with FIPA specifications. To this end, we will discuss eleven diagrams depicting the model sequences of interaction agents. Their use can be found in the construction of multi-agent systems.
