X. Zheng and S. Koenig. Negotiation with Reaction Functions for Solving Complex Task Allocation Problems. In Proceedings of the IEEE International Conference on Intelligent Robots and Systems (IROS), pages 4811-4816, 2009.

Abstract: We study task-allocation problems where cooperative robots need to perform tasks simultaneously. We develop a distributed negotiation procedure that allows robots to find all task exchanges that reduce the team cost of a given task allocation, without robots having to know how other robots compute their robot costs. Finally, we demonstrate empirically that our negotiation procedure can substantially reduce the team costs of task allocations resulting from existing task-allocation procedures, including sequential single-item auctions.
