Mixed Multi-Unit Combinatorial Auctions (MMUCAs) allow agents to bid for bundles of goods to buy, goods to sell, and transformations of goods. In particular, MMUCAs offer a high potential to be employed for the automated assembly of supply chains of agents offering goods and services, and in general MMUCAs extend and generalise several types of combinatorial auctions. In this letter, we summarise our current research on MMUCAs and highlight lines for future research.
