Neg-o-net - a negotiation simulation test-bed

David Hales

Presented at the FIRMA workshop, Maastricht, April 2002. Published as part of the FIRMA workpackage 3 report.


The Neg-o-Net model is a generic agent-based computational simulation model for capturing multi-agency negotiations concerning resource and environmental management decisions. The model is intended to be generic enough to be applicable to many regional applications with minimal re-programming. Neg-o-Net was developed by the Centre for Policy Modelling at Manchester Metropolitan University. The initial design was produced in collaboration with IP-CNR Rome partners.
