In this paper, we propose a multilateral negotiation model in which the agents interact in a fully decentralized way. The proposed protocol draws on "divide and rule" approach. The agents are divided into different groups called "rings" in which negotiations take place simultaneously. We propose interaction policies allowing the communication between agents from different rings. We seek through this approach to limit the agents' scope of interaction and hence to reduce agents reasoning complexity to facilitate agreement research. We have evaluated our protocol by comparing it with a model where all of the agents negotiate in the same group.
