When making reservations for Cloud services, consumers

through negotiation. Whereas it is essential for both a consumer

and when to use the service, to date, there is little or no negotiation

service reservations. This paper presents a multi-issue negotiation

agents and 2) tradeoff between price and time-slot utilities. Unlike

agent can onlymake one proposal at a time, agents in this work are

round that generate the same aggregated utility, differing only in

of this work is formulating a novel time-slot utility function that

implemented in an agent-based Cloud testbed. Using the testbed,

related approaches. Empirical results show that PTN agents reach

approaches. A case study was carried out to demonstrate the

application of the PTN mechanism for pricing Cloud resources.
