    To Instructors

    If you are already familiar with Imbins registration procedures and set up, you may go directly to the Group Information Form. This allows for a timely setup, the same starting date, and pairing with groups from other countries. We organize negotiations every 5-8 weeks. If you are using Imbins for the first time, we recommend reviewing the Instructor's Synopsis. It is a comprehensive review of registration procedures, information about cases and other useful information.

    To Web Surfers

    To try Imbins you need to fill in a short negotiation request form.

    negotiation via imbins

    Imbins© (InterNeg multi-bilateral integrative negotiation system) is a multi-bilateral (i.e. one vs. many) negotiation system powered by Invite©. It has been developed for teaching and research purposes. We collect and analyse information generated during negotiations. We also ask users to fill in two questionnaires. Under no circumstances, however, do we provide or allow access to individual records nor do we disclose any information about any users (e.g., their names or email addresses).

    Our users find the system easy and fun to use. They have enjoyed discussions on the Web with unknown opponents. They were able to use different strategies, learn more about negotiations and negotiation support, and work on their communication and negotiation skills.

    Please use Mozilla Firefox 3.5 (or above) or Google Chrome with monitor resolution 1280*1024 (or above).

    Before you begin your negotiations

    Please follow these simple steps:

  • Read about the Imbins system.
  • Review the example that demonstrates Imbins features.
  • Look at a handout for an explanation of the main steps and actions for using Imbins.
  • A video that demonstrates the use of Imbins and its features (as a buyer).
  • A video that demonstrates the use of Imbins and its features (as a seller).
  • Read an e-procurement teaching note.
  • And remember that we have prepared FAQ and Glossary pages for you.

    If you decide to use Imbins, please note that we will pair you with someone who wishes to negotiate with you. Check your email everyday and please do not reply to the email which you receive from the Imbins system; you need to log in negotiate; to make offers and send messages.
