This booklet constitutes the completely refereed post-conference complaints of the ninth overseas Workshop on Agent-Mediated digital trade, AMEC IX, co-located with the 6th overseas Joint convention on independent brokers and Multiagent structures, AAMAS 2007, held in Honolulu, Hawai, in may perhaps 2007, and the fifth Workshop on buying and selling Agent layout and research, TADA 2007, co-located with the Twenty-Second AAAI convention on synthetic Intelligence, AAAI 2007, held in Vancouver, Canada, in July 2007.

This quantity provides 15 conscientiously revised and chosen papers from those workshops. the first and complementary objective of either workshops was once to proceed to compile novel paintings from diversified fields on modeling, implementation and evaluate of computational buying and selling associations and/or agent concepts. The papers originating from AMEC specialise in a wide number of matters on auctions, negotiation, and strategic habit in digital marketplaces. The papers originating from TADA replicate the hassle of the group to layout eventualities the place buying and selling agent designers and industry designers should be pitched opposed to one another.

Example text

Between all the scenarios, the auctioneer’s revenue for S4 is the highest – see Equations 18, 20, 24, and 25. 4. Since the revenue for scenario S2 , is higher than that for S1 , it is in the auctioneer’s interest not to reveal information regarding which auction is the last one. This leaves the bidders’ uncertain about whether or not there will be any future auctions and forces them to bid higher in a given auction. 5. The time to compute the equilibrium bids for the three scenarios depends on the time to compute the functions α1 , α2 , α3 and α4 (see Equations 3, 14, 19, and 23).

Market scenarios often fit this description for a number of reasons. For instance, an online seller might not interact with the same customer J. Collins et al. ): AMEC/TADA 2007, LNBIP 13, pp. 30–45, 2008. c Springer-Verlag Berlin Heidelberg 2008 Adapting Price Predictions in TAC SCM 31 repeatedly, removing the incentive to model the individual customer’s behavior. In large systems such as stock markets, the actions of a single agent may not be significant enough to have a noticeable effect on the system.

Those agents in bold eventually advanced to the final round, the results of which are shown in Table 2. From these tables we can observe that scores decreased significantly from the seeding round to the final round as the competition increased, and in fact, some agents that were profitable in the seeding round lost money in the final round. Also, several of the top agents in the seeding round failed to advance to the final round. These observations confirm that, as is common in many market scenarios, TAC agents can behave and perform differently depending on market conditions, and that directly predicting an opponent’s behavior may be difficult when the opponent is faced with unfamiliar market conditions.
