A collaborative planning effort between partners that form coalitions may be complicated by policies that regulate what actions they may deploy in their plans and, in particular, what information they are allowed to exchange during the planning process. We are interested in situations where coalitions have to be formed ad-hoc without much co-training. For this, we investigate how agents can support human planners in producing good plans while observing the normative standards that regulate their planning and communication behavior. Based on an implementation of such norm-processing agents, we conducted a set of experiments, where human test subjects were conducting collaborative planning tasks under the guidance of these agents. A summary of experimental results is provided in the paper.
