Abstract

We provide a retrospective on the research leading to and following our paper “A Distributed Architecture for Norm-Aware Agent Societies” [1], presented at DALT 2005. We do so by giving the context and motivation for that research, listing its contributions, and discussing the main developments of the research and its impact.
