Abstract

In this extended abstract we borrow an example from the
Portuguese Penal Code to advocate that norms used to regulate interaction in human societies, just as those used in
multi-agent systems, require the joint use of the features
based on the Closed World Assumption of rules in Logic Programming and those based on the Open World Assumption
of ontologies in Description Logics, all of which are provided
by Hybrid MKNF Knowledge Bases.
