Acknowledgements The term “Agreement Technologies” was introduced by Michael Wooldridge in conversations at the AAMAS conference in 2004. It was also used by Nicholas R. Jennings as title for a keynote talk given in 2005. Carles Sierra was among the first to give shape to the field by defining five key areas as technological building blocks for AT in 2007. This work was partially supported by the Spanish Ministry of Science and Innovation through the project “Agreement Technologies” (CONSOLIDER CSD2007-0022, INGENIO 2010).
Part VII provides several examples of AT-based applications for e-Commerce. Chapters 32 and 36 describe applications that support Business-to-Business interactions in a dynamic and adaptive manner (to this respect, see also the comments on crowdsourcing in Chap. 2).
