Abstract: Norms are usually applied in Multi-Agent Systems to regulate the behavior of software agents and maintain social order. Those systems can be regulated by multiple norms and require a mechanism to verify whether the set of norms is conflict-free or not. The detection of indirect normative conflicts is not a trivial task since they only can be identified when the detection mechanism is able to infer that different elements that compose two norms are related in some way. In this research, we propose a mechanism to detect normative conflicts by combining two different approaches. The former uses information from a domain ontology that stores relationships that are exclusive of the MAS. The latter uses information from a lexical database called WordNet that stores relationships among concepts of the real world. This research results in the implementation of a tool with a robust mechanism for normative conflict detection that can be used during the design of a MAS.
