Different negotiation engineering domains require from the system designer to tailor the negotiation framework according to the domain under which it will be used. This process of system design is timely consuming when supporting different geographically distributed and dynamic environments. Here, the authors show a methodology to design negotiation systems by integrating domain-dependent message structure ontology with domain-independent marketplace architecture. The methodology gives the system designers a powerful modeling tool that can be used to tailor the framework in order to support different negotiation behaviors under different domains.
