Dagstuhl Seminar on Normative Multi Agent Systems (NorMAS 2015)

End of March I had the pleasure to attend my first Dagstuhl seminar. I quite enjoyed the week of inspiring discussions and talks. Many ideas to follow-up in the next weeks and months to come. My connection and approach to NorMAS is outlined in the following position paper:

Position Paper and Talk Title: Collaboration Pattern Modeling in Support of Norm Specification, Monitoring, and Preservation

Abstract: Collaboration-intensive environments call for technical systems that permit flexible user interactions. Rigid workflows are no suitable collaboration paradigm. As users apply various patterns such as shared artifact, social networks, client/principal, or publish/subscribe for interaction, their cooperative behavior becomes largely determined by norms. In this paper, we make the case for explicit modeling of collaboration patterns as the substrate for specifying, monitoring, and preserving norms. Describing collaboration patterns in the form of human-centric component and connector architecture views provides a means for reasoning on collaboration control, flexibility, and ultimately adaptability. We report on recent work targeting executable collaboration patterns and outline resulting synergies with norms.
