Introduction

Research on negotiation and task allocation has been in the multi-agent systems realm since its inception as a research field. More recently, social aspects of agent-hood have received increasing attention, namely developing on the fields of normative and trust systems. The integration of these different research contributions will allow to build robust applications for electronic agreement negotiation, aiming at their acceptability and application in industry.
