Commitments, like contracts and agreements, are fundamental components of social and economic life, and
have been widely adopted through multiparty computerised systems – comprising multiple interacting agents
including humans and robots –to regulate interactions. In this context, it is imperative to provide appropriate
incentives for ensuring optimal commitment compliance from stakeholders. This project aims to develop a deep
unified understanding of how incentives, whether externally provided or being manifested as emotional cues,
can be efficiently used for that end in diverse multiparty interactions (e.g. those involving cooperation and trust).
It will offer new insights into the general use of incentives.
