CALL FOR PAPERS: Norms Actions Games, 1-2 Apr 2014, King's College London, London (U.K.)

NAG 2014


In strategic interaction, where multiple agents pursue personal 
objectives, conflict is bound to arise, as the actions of the individual 
agents have an effect on the welfare of the others. In such situations the 
need arises for the explicit regulation of individual and collective 
behaviour which has traditionally followed two alternative approaches, 
well-known in the economics literature: the spontaneous order approach, 
which studies how norms result from endogenous agreements among rational 
individuals, and the mechanism design approach, which studies how norms 
are exogenously designed in order to reach desirable properties.

The present workshop is motivated by the conviction that the two paradigms 
to understand norms in strategic interaction are by no means incompatible 
and can be effectively used together for regulative purposes. The aim of 
the symposium is to gather researchers looking at norms in strategic 
interaction from different perspectives, i.e. philosophy, computer 
science, game theory, logic, fostering discussion and interdisciplinary 
collaboration. Researchers will be given the opportunity of presenting 
their work in a stimulating environment, without novelty constraints on 
their contribution.

The workshop will encourage submissions in (but will not be limited to) 
the following areas:

    Normative multi-agent systems
    Norms in experimental game theory
    Theories of agency and responsibility
    Action formalisms
    Theories of collective responsibility and norms
    Theories of contracts
    Bargaining and negotiation
    Coalition formation
    Norms and preferences
    Theories of compliance
    Norm emergence and simulation
    Norm change
    Deontic logic

The workshop is sponsored by SINTELNET, the European Network for Social 
Intelligence, and NIBS, the ESRC Network for Integrated Behavioural
