Additional Information: Originality: The work presented in this paper was developed at an early stage in the development of service-oriented software and web services. It proposes a formal language for negotiation between software services, focusing on the contextual elements of a service and strategies for employing particular services under given conditions. The work is aimed at a higher conceptual level than current web service architectures, designed facilitate service sharing at an application level rather than an individual software component. Rigour: The work has drawn heavily on social science models of negotiation, developing notations to express both strategic intent and tactical decision making in negotiating for service. Significance: This work is ground-breaking in that it addresses negotiation at a much higher level of abstraction and thereby has to address broader issues of commerce, risk and responsibilities and trade-off. Impact: The work has developed a community of interest currently supported by an EPSRC Network Grant (SOSorNet, EP/D036852/1). The work has also underpinned an EPSRC Distributed Information Management Grant (IBHIS, GR/R51971/01) which employs some of the techniques developed in this work.
