@inproceedings { pereira13, abstract = {One of the most pervasive concepts in human interactions is social power since many social situations entail disputes of social power. These disputes are power games and range from simple personal reasoning to the exercise of specific power strategies, which enhance or assert one's power. Recognizing the importance of such interactions and how they can enhance autonomous agents' socially intelligent behaviors, we present a conceptual framework integrating the different bases of power as social forces that can underlie an agent's deliberative decision process. This work establishes a theoretical basis for social intelligent agents capable of both being aware of and manipulating social power.}, address = {Saint Paul, Minnesota, USA}, booktitle = {Proceedings of the 2013 International Conference on Autonomous Agents and Multi-agent Systems}, keywords = {autonomous agents, social intelligence, social power;Intelligent Virtual Agents;}, month = {May}, pages = {1289--1290}, publisher = {International Foundation for Autonomous Agents and Multiagent Systems}, series = {AAMAS '13}, title = {Bases of Social Power for Agents}, year = {2013}, author = {Gonçalo Pereira and Rui Prada and Pedro A.
