Negotiation Support Systems & Studies (NS3)

Business and personal interactions increasingly take place online and they contribute to building new relationships and associations. People involved in these interactions may have to engage in e-negotiations with using such common systems as email and skype, support tools and aids that are often embedded in business systems, as well as dedicated electronic negotiation support systems (NSSs). Researchers, developers and practitioners who design and develop NSSs, study their use in the laboratories and in the field, or incorporate NSS components into negotiation, mediation and facilitation are invited to participate in the NS3 stream.

We solicit papers looking at either theory or practice, or both. In particular, we seek papers that help bridging the gap between the vast amount of work on face-to-face negotiations and online negotiations as well decision and negotiation aids embedded in negotiation processes. We also seek papers that focus on the design and use of tools for decision support, communication support, document management, or conflict management for the negotiators and mediators in electronic negotiation processes.

One goal of the NS3 stream is to bring together automated approaches (such as multi-agent systems) and support approaches (such as NSSs enabling negotiations between human negotiators). The Stream has the following objectives:

  1. To show the latest research in negotiation support systems and their use in e-negotiation processes.
  2. To discuss a holistic approach to support human negotiators in complex processes.
  3. To discuss the design and implementation issues of software agents for and in GDN.
  4. To explore the role of agents in homogenous and heterogeneous environments.
  5. To explore strategic reasoning and behaviours in argumentation-based negotiations.

Topics of interest include:

  • Bilateral, multi-bilateral and multi-lateral e-negotiations
  • Electronic mediation and mediation support
  • Cross-cultural online negotiations
  • Electronic mediation and facilitation
  • Emerging applications for e-negotiations (e.g., crowdsourcing, social networks)
  • Methodological issues and challenges
  • Negotiation support
  • Negotiation, planning and collective decision-making
  • Ontologies and Semantic/Pragmatic Web for e-negotiations
  • Usability and usefulness of e-negotiation systems
