In multi-agent setting agent teams often encounter conflicts in agents’ plans and actions. This paper presents a cooperative negotiation model (ABCON) that allows agents in a team to appropriately negotiate various options in a hostile and dynamic fire world. It shows that negotiations explore the attitudes and behaviors that help agents to manage conflict constructively. It says that cooperative negotiation is guided by the agents’ dynamic assessment of alternative actions given the different scenario conditions. The application and implementation of this model to a virtual fire-fighting domain has revealed a promising prospect in negotiating conflicts and solving them. © 2005 - IOS Press and the authors.
