Abstract

Coalitional games can be used to model a variety of problems in the real world. In coalitional game theory, how players form coalitions and divide payoffs is one fundamental issue to be answered. This demo presents an online negotiation environment for coalitional games (ONECG), in which coalitional negotiation can be conduced in a distributed way between people, agents, or in mixed settings via offer exchange and natural language communication. ONECG also allows configuration of specifications of coalitional games, and supports the rapid development of new negotiating agents through a set of well-defined APIs. This new environment is helpful to facilitate research on training human negotiation skills in coalitional games as well as the design of negotiation agents.
