We describe the strategy used by our agent, IAMhaggler2011, which finished in third place in the 2011 Automated Negotiating Agent Competition. A key feature of this agent is the way in which it models the likely negotiation behaviour of its opponent. Specifically, it first uses a Gaussian process regression technique to estimate the future concession of its negotiation opponent. Its concession is then set as a best response to this prediction.
