Abstract
Automated Multi-attribute Negotiation is an important and valuable mechanism in the Navy detailing system, in order to realize efficient, distributed and ?Win-Win? matching. This report provides an extensive literature review of the existing research in Multi-attribute Negotiations in the fields of Economics and Artificial Intelligence, discussing the motivation for multi-attribute negotiations, as well as some difficulties in implementation. Related to Multi-attribute Negotiations, approaches to preference elicitation and multi-criteria-decision-making are also reviewed. Based on the existing literature, we conclude that multi-attribute negotiation is an important as well as challenging research problem.
