© Springer International Publishing AG 2017. In this paper we introduce a negotiation mediator in a multi-agent context. When negotiation fails, a mediator can interact with the parties, find out about their goals, ontologies, and arguments for and against negotiation outcome, and suggest solutions based on previous experience. An algorithmic schema to be instantiated with particular argumentation, semantic alignment and case-base reasoning techniques is presented. The proposal is neutral with respect to which particular technique is selected. An example illustrates the approach that is framed in the existing body of literature on argumentation and mediation.
