Resource management systems are changing from localized resources and services towards virtual organizations (VOs) sharing millions of heterogeneous resources across multiple organizations and domains. The virtual organizations and usage models include a variety of owners and consumers with different usage, access policies, cost models, varying loads, requirements and availability. The stakeholders have private utility functions that must be satisfied and possibly maximized.
This paper proposes automated negotiation techniques between web services for the formation of virtual organizations. More specifically, a multi-issue sealed bid auction is implemented between a VO manager and potential VO members on the resources they provide or on their payment for requested resources. We evaluate our approach to show that negotiation allows to form a more efficient VO.
