We propose a computational model that facilitates agents in a MAS to collaboratively evolve their norms to reach the best norm conventions. Our approach borrows from the social contagion phenomenon to exploit the notion of positive infection: agents with good behaviors become infectious to spread their norms in the agent society. By combining infection and innovation, our computational model helps a MAS establish better norm conventions even when a sub-optimal one has fully settled in the population.
