2013 Dagstuhl Publications  
The authors in [51] propose a language that deals with automated conflict detection in norms by using a tool that supports ontologies and translates normative propositions into a Prolog program.  ...  On the contrary, an important amount of time and effort is wasted in trying to overcome the deficiencies of everyday regulations.  ...  An organisational artefact employs a normative program which in turn implements a MOISE + specification.  ...
