  abstract =     "The mechanism design problem in economics is about
                 designing rules of interaction for market games so they
                 yield a globally desirable result in the face of
                 self-interested agents. This problem, which is of
                 importance for ecommerce since much E-commerce is
                 carried out through auctions, can be extremely complex.
                 Traditionally, economists have tried using game theory
                 and other formal methods to construct suitable
                 mechanism rules. However, analytical methods typically
                 oversimplify the problem and so the resulting rules are
                 not necessarily robust. In this paper, we report on an
                 alternative approach which we hope will eventually
                 yield more robust solutions. Our methodology views
                 mechanism design as a multi-objective optimisation
                 problem and addresses the problem using genetic
