Exception Handling in Electronic Contracting

Lookup NU author(s): Dr Carlos Molina-Jimenez, Emeritus Professor Santosh Shrivastava, Dr Massimo Strano



In a contract, exceptional clauses specify sanctions that come in force when the primary obligations are not fulfilled. An important aspect of exception handling is their resolution: determining which particular exception clause should be enforced when a violation is detected. This paper presents a specification and resolution technique for electronic contracts that can be used by a third party exception resolution service.
