Past years have witnessed a growing interest in automated negotiation as a coordination mechanism for interacting agents. This paper presents a generic, problem- and domain-independent framework for argumentation-based negotiation that covers both essential agent-internal and external components relevant to automated negotiation. This framework, called Negotiation Situation Specification Scheme (NSSS), is both suited as a guideline for implementing negotiation scenarios as well as integrating available approaches that address selective aspects of negotiation. In particular, NSSS contributes to the state of the art in automated negotiation by identifying and relating basic argument types and negotiation stages in a structured and formal way.
