Viviane Torres da Silva and Christiano Braga. Modeling and Validating Norms. In Normative Multi-Agent Systems. Dagstuhl Seminar Proceedings, Volume 9121, pp. 1-16, Schloss Dagstuhl – Leibniz-Zentrum für Informatik (2009)


Norms describe the permissions, prohibitions and obligations of agents in multi-agent systems in order to regulate their behavior. In this paper we propose a normative modeling language that makes possible the modeling of norms motivating the modeling of such norms together with the non-normative part of the system. In addition, we also propose a mechanism to validate the norms at design time, i.e., to check if the norms respect the constraints defined by the language and also their possible conflicts.
