HANA is an agent architecture suitable for multiple bilateral negotiations in realistic problems involving humans. The architecture deals with prenegotiation and provides a new search and negotiation technique where search and negotiation go hand in hand: the former providing offers to propose, and the later providing commitments for pruning the search space, and information for fine-tuning the evaluation of offers. The architecture represents graded beliefs, dynamic desires and general intentions. It can be extended incorporating new behavioural models that can enrich the negotiation strategy with new information.
