Norms and argumentation are two research areas which have been becoming increasingly connected over the last decade, in the legal field, in knowledge representation, ethics, or linguistics, and most recently, in agreement technologies in computer science. Norms are used to set the space of legal agreements (or commitments) and argumentation is used to choose among the possible agreements. Moreover, we may consider norms set not only the scope of possible legal agreements, but also the way we can choose among these possible agreements. We highlight the main open challenges in argumentation and norms considering two parallel problems: how to argue about norms, and how norms influence the argumentation.
