Abstract
In this report, we first discuss the modeling context that is suitable for the multi-attribute negotiations in the Navy detailing process. Then, we present the model based on a novel negotiation protocol for automated multi-attribute negotiations. The negotiation algorithm, negotiation strategies and the mediator?s problem are included in this model. Based on the discussions in this report, we conclude that our model is distributed, Pareto efficient and tractable.
