Normative systems seems to be one of the actual trends in research in Multi Agent Systems. Classical normative systems have always treated the control and fulfilment of the rules from the legal point of view, through the existence of a central authority in charge of that. However, social norms are the perfect complement for the legal model when trying to control behaviours whose fulfilment is more difficult to reach by the authority members, and the sanction comes in a social punishment. In this seminar I will present the platform developed and the results obtained for the Master Thesis presented in this Institute last July. This platform helps, with evolutionary techniques, to find a suitable set of social norms in a society of virtual agents, using as a toy-scenario a metaphor of the Y?ana society. Furthermore, it will be presented the actual line of research being developed in this same topic.
