This paper presents the design and implementation of a collaborative multi-agent system for automated negotiation processes occurring in dynamic networked environments. The focus is given to a negotiation mechanism required at business level. The mechanism is achieved by software agents within a collaborative working environment in the special case of notified transient situations. Automated negotiation is one of the most common approaches used to make decisions and manage disputes between computational entities leading them to optimal agreements. The proposed solution is based on a multi-agent system architecture that applies rule-based negotiation at business level. This architecture has been tested in the case of on-line auctions in distributed networks.
