Given the dynamic interaction presented in multiagent systems, the occurrence of exceptions in interaction protocols is frequent, and therefore a critical issue. However, current approaches for designing interaction protocols lack semantics to direct the exchange of messages, when exceptions are raised. Here, we propose modeling exception handlers by means of obligations, which are social norms that provide a semantic layer that helps to select, compose and evaluate exception handlers.
