Multiagent auctions for multiple items

Houssein Ben-Ameur, Brahim Chaib-draa & Peter Kropf

Résumé Available resources can often be limited with regard to the number of demands. In this paper we propose an approach for solving this problem using the mech- anisms of multi-item auctions for allocating the re- sources to a set of software agents. We consider the re- source allocation problem as a market with vendor and buyer agents participating in a multi-item auction. The agents exhibit different acquisition capabilities which let them act differently depending on the current con- text or situation of the market. We present a model for this approach based on the English auction, and dis- cuss experimental evidence of such a model.
