Abstract

The literature on social agents has put forward a number of requirements that social agents need to fulfill. In this paper we analyze the kinds of reasons and motivations that lie behind the statement of these requirements. In a second part of the paper, we look at how one can go about engineering the social agents. We introduce a general language in which to express dialogue rules and some tools that support the development of dialogue systems.
