Ulle Endriss to Paris Dauphine, 22-27 March 2009

The main purpose of this STSM has been to continue joint work with Nicolas Maudet on multiagent resource allocation and fair division. Specifically, we have refined previous work on the convergence to allocations of resources that satisfy certain fairness criteria, such as proportionality and envy-freeness, by means of distributed mechanisms of negotiation between autonomous agents. Besides joint research, we have also discussed plans for future joint projects and possibilities for obtaining funding for these projects.
