Overview of the social norms and exception handling knowledge bases. Contracts Agents join societies in order to interact with other agents.

Through the development of a set of core social elements and processes (Figure 2), successful civil societies have managed to leverage the capabilities of their members, reducing the “barriers to survival” while increasing the total social welfare. We presented a framework that captures some of the fundamental elements and processes of Civil Agent Societies and helps agent marketplace developers design, prototype and evaluate “civil society” versions of open agent marketplaces. Our aim is to help marketplace developers systematically consider the issues that arise when a particular class of market mechanisms are used in an open environment, as well as experiment with various design tradeoffs between individual autonomy and social support, in order to build practical, efficient and robust open systems.
