Bidding Agents for Composite Products across Multiple, Simultaneous Auctions

Ioan Alfred Letia (Technical University of Cluj-Napoca)

A bidding environment is considered, where the plans for composite products are represented in SHOP. The model takes into account the quality required by the customer, the remaining auction time, a measure of the environment and the number of remaining plans. The bidding agent model includes internal parameters for quality, remaining time, and remaining plans. The estimation of the current valuation uses the polynomial function. An experimental model has been developed by extending the TAC (Trading Agent Competition) framework accordingly.
