Siqi Chen and Gerhard Weiss (Swarmlab, DKE) made a shared third place at this year’s International Automated Negotiating Agent Competition (ANAC 2012, http://anac2012.ecs.soton.ac.uk/). This annual competition brings together researchers from the negotiation community and provides a unique benchmark for evaluating practical negotiation strategies in multi-issue domains. Their negotiating agent, OMACagent*, combines opponent modeling (achieved through mathematical techniques known as wavelet decomposition and cubic smoothing spline) and adaptive concession making. OMACagent* is a light implementation of the OMAC strategy for automated negotiation which is described in detail in “Chen & Weiss: An Efficient and Adaptive Approach to Negotiation in Complex Environments”, Proceedings of the 20th European Conference on Artificial Intelligence, 2012 (to appear)”.
