A Software Infrastructure for Negotiation within Inter-Organisational Alliances

Mihnea Bratu, Jean-Marc Andreoli, Olivier Boissier, Stefania Castellani
In this paper we present the negotiation component of e-Alliance, a software infrastructure we are defining for supporting negotiation activities in concurrent inter-organisational alliances. e-Alliance main intent is to preserve the autonomy of organisations grouped in an alliance while enabling concurrency of their activities, flexibility of their negotiations and dynamism/evolution of their environment. We propose a negotiation support to the managers of the organisations belonging to such alliances, which combines middleware-level coordination facilities and multi-agent systems support. We present our approach in the context offered by a sample scenario of an alliance where partners out/insource jobs among them for better accomplishing their customers' requests.
