Abstract

This article reports work on first steps toward characterizing a negotiation process model for ad hoc and distributed groups or teams, so that automation can more accurately track the states of a negotiation from human discourse. We devised three experimental scenarios and ran human subject experiments that involved group decision-making and consensus building. Our experiments showed that the communication patterns of successful distributed ad hoc teams differed in two significantly different conditions. We describe our motivations, experimental design and results.
