Special session on **Norms and Normative Multi-Agent Systems** CLIMA XII, 12th International Workshop on Computational Logic in Multi-Agent Systems, Barcelona, Spain
++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ Proceedings: LNCS/LNAI volume (available at the workshop). JLC Special Issue: Selected extended papers will be published in a Special Issue of the Journal of Logic and Computation. ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ INTRODUCTION Norms are pervasive in everyday life and influence the conduct of the entities subject to them. One of the main functions of norms is to regulate the behaviour and relationships of agents. Accordingly, any agent or multi agent system, if intended to operate in or model a realistic environment has to take into account to norms regulating. Norms have been proposed in multi-agent systems and computer science to deal with coordination issues, to deal with security issues of multi-agent systems, to model legal issues in electronic institutions and electronic commerce, to model multi-agent organizations, etc. The list of subjects includes (but is not limited to) the following topics: - logical foundations of normative systems - computational models of normative systems - computational models of normative multi-agent systems - formal models of norm dynamics - agent autonomy and norms - agent deliberation and norms - normative agent types - programming normative multi-agent systems SUBMISSION We welcome and encourage the submission of high quality, original papers, which have not been accepted for publication nor are currently under review for another journal or conference. Detailed information regarding CLIMA, its topics of interest, the two Special Sessions, formatting and submission instructions is available at http://centria.di.fct.unl.pt/events/climaXII/ PROCEEDINGS AND POST-PROCEEDINGS LNCS Proceedings: All the accepted papers (including special session papers) will be published by Springer as a volume in Lecture Notes in Computer Science, and will be available in time for the workshop. JLC Special Issue: After the workshop, authors of selected papers will be invited to extend and re-submit their work to be considered for inclusion in a CLIMA Special Issue of the Journal of Logic and Computation. Important dates: * Submission: April 4th (Abstracts) / April 8th (Papers) * Notification: May 4th * Camera Ready: May 16th Special Session Organisers: * Guido Boella, University of Turin, Italy * Leon van der Torre, Univ. of Luxembourg, Luxembourg In case of questions, please do not hesitate to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org .
