Abstract: Commerce is all about interaction between buyers and sellers at all stages, and the most common mechanism of commerce is negotiation. In this thesis, we propose two models, namely a Local Service Model (LSM) and a Network Cluster Model (NCM), for an Agent-based Automated Negotiation System (AANS) in e-marketplace web applications that are suitable for local and distributed computing environments. Unlike other existing negotiation systems that either focus on the design of negotiation algorithms or focus on an integrated agent-mediated e-trading solution, our proposed models for AANS are shown to be completely adaptable in terms of modularized system design, dynamic negotiation organization and efficient communication mechanisms. To demonstrate the real-life potential of AANS, we discuss on the design, implementation and testing of a Second-hand Computer e-Marketplace (SCCM) scenario for the proposed models. Our approach will make sense for adoption and acceptance of a wide range of agent-based intelligent services.
