Sample text

Thus, an action is considered as allowed when there is not any norm that forbids it explicitly. Norms can be addressed to any agent that plays a specific role or they can affect a specific agent also. Consequently, a criterion for norm precedence is needed. In this case, a rule known as lex specialis has been employed [17]. Therefore, the normative analysis begins with checking agent addressed norms. If there is not any norm, norms related to the roles played by the agent are considered. Regarding detection of norm activation and deactivation, this functionality has been implemented through a set of rules that detect the occurrence of the activation and deactivation events.

Keywords: Multi-Agent Systems, Normative Language, Virtual Organizations, Web Services. 1 Introduction A promising approach in the multi-agent systems (MAS) area is the development of open systems. The main features of open systems are: (i) they are populated by heterogeneous agents which can enter or leave the system dynamically; and (ii) they are situated in dynamic environments. Therefore, organizations are conceived as an effective mechanism for coordinating the behaviour of heterogeneous agents, imposing not only structural restrictions on their relationships, but also normative restrictions on their behaviour [1,2].
