Implementing Norms?
Found in: Web Intelligence and Intelligent Agent Technology, IEEE/WIC/ACM International Conference on
By Loïs Vanhée,Huib Aldewereld,Frank Dignum
Issue Date:August 2011
pp. 13-16
Normative logics offer descriptions on expected behavior of agents inside a system. Norm implementation in MAS is rarely discussed and in practice, introducing norms triggers indirect impacts on the behavior of agents. In order to obtain some experience, w...
Programming Role Enactment through Reflection

By M. Birna van Riemsdijk,Virginia Dignum,Catholijn M. Jonker,Huib Aldewereld
Issue Date:August 2011
pp. 133-140
Organizational modeling languages are used to specify an agent organization in terms of its roles, organizational structure, norms, etc. Agents take part in organizations by playing one or more of the specified roles. Using such an organizational specifica...

Found in: IEEE Intelligent Systems
By Huib Aldewereld, Julian Padget, Wamberto Vasconcelos, Javier V´zquez-Salceda, Paul Sergeant, Athanasios Staikopoulos
Issue Date:July 2010
pp. 26-35
Service-oriented computing is the new wave emerging from maturing Web services and the adoption of elements from Semantic Web technology. More sophistication, in response to business requirements, does of course not make it easier to use or to control. In ...

By Loris Penserini, Frank Dignum, Virginia Dignum, Huib Aldewereld, Davide Grossi
Issue Date:September 2009
pp. 153-160
A Multi-Agent System is often conceived as an organization of autonomous software agents that participate into social and evolving structures (e.g., organizational configurations) suitable to deal with highly dynamic environments. Nevertheless, systems bas...
Adaptivity within an Organizational Development Framework
Found in: Self-Adaptive and Self-Organizing Systems, IEEE International Conference on
By Loris Penserini, Huib Aldewereld, Frank Dignum, Virginia Dignum
Issue Date:October 2008
pp. 477-478
The paper provides a study for different kinds of context change that require adaptations of organizational structures through the use of the OperA methodology. This analysis has been conducted within a (simplified) crisis management scenario allowing for ...

Issue Date:July 2005
pp. 1291-1292
There is a wide agreement on the use of norms in order to specify the expected behaviour of agents in open MAS. However, in highly regulated domains, where norms dictate what can and cannot be done, it can be hard to determine whether a desired goal can ac...
