Extending NormLab to Spur Research on Norm Synthesis

Abstract:
On-line norm synthesis is a widely used approach to facilitate coordination in MASs. In [2] we introduced NormLab, a computational framework to support research on on-line norm synthesis. That framework provides functionalities to model, simulate and analyse norm synthesis algorithms in an agent-based simulation environment. Here we present several extensions to that work, providing a benchmark for research on norm synthesis in MAS.
