Clearly, there are various degrees of how static or dynamic environments can be, and this is only a simplification. Even so, the dynamicity of the environment might affect the design of the utility function of the agents in a subtle way. R. Lomuscio, M. R. Jennings behaviour would be less likely to produce a positive payoff in a very dynamic environment. The characteristics of the goods also crucially define the negotiation protocol: – private/public value of the goods; and – nature of the goods.

Indeed, such series must take into account how agents process the various proposals. However, agents process messages (embodying the proposals) they receive in whatever order that suits them. This thus leads to a combinatoric explosion with regard to the number of possible series. But, if one deals with possible message sequences related to a given proposal, then expressing all of them becomes feasible. Such sequences start when a new proposal appears and end when agents run out of (outgoing) messages related to this proposal.

Here we focused specifically on automated negotiation since we consider this to be the key type of interaction in such systems. Automated negotiation, like its human analogue, is a very broad and encompassing discipline. For this reason, it is important to understand the dimensions and range of options that are available. As a preliminary step in this direction, we have developed a classification scheme that is specifically targeted at automated negotiation for e-commerce settings. This classification scheme was illustrated on the papers contained in this volume and the results are summarised in Table 1.
