The explosivegrowthofInternet-enabled distributed electronic marketshas p- sented participants with steadily increasing costs for search, transactions, and coordination. This has resulted in growing interest in the design of intelligent trading agents, mechanisms, and systems. Furthermore, new technologies s- porting business models are resulting in a growing volume of open and horiz- tally integrated markets for trading of an increasingly diverse sets of goods and services. However, growth of technologies for such markets requires innovative solutions to a diverse set of existing and novel technical problems which we are only beginning to understand. Specifically, distributed markets present not only traditional economic problems but also introduce new and challenging com- tational issues that are not represented in classic economic solution concepts. Research in agent-mediated electronic commmerce addresses these issues in thecomputationalsubstratesoftradingagents,andin theelectronicinstitutions thatsupporttrading.Insum,agent-mediatedelectronictraderequiresprincipled design(fromeconomicsandgametheory)andincorporatesnovelcombinationsof theories from difierent disciplines such as computer science, operations research, artificial intelligence, and distributed systems.
