Abstract

E-contracting, i.e., establishing and enacting electronic contracts, has become important because of technological advances (e.g., the availability of web services) and more open markets. However, the establishment of an e-contract is complicated and error prone. There are multiple negotiation styles ranging from auctions to bilateral bargaining. This paper provides an approach for modeling multi-party negotiation protocols in colored Petri nets. It is shown how different negotiation styles can be modeled in a unified and consistent way. Moreover, CPN Tools is used to analyze the resulting colored Petri nets. Simulation can be used for both validation and performance analysis, while state-space analysis can be used to discover anomalies in various multi-part negotiation protocols.
