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
