In multi-agent systems norms are an important influence that can engender cooperation by constraining actions and binding groups together. A key question is how to establish a suitable set of norms in a decentralised population of self- interested agents, especially where individual agents might not adhere to the rules of the system. In this paper we inves- tigate the problem of norm emergence, and the related issue of group recognition, using tag-based cooperation as the interaction model. We explore characteristics that affect the longevity and adoption of norms in tag-based cooperation, and provide an empirical evaluation of existing techniques for supporting cooperation in the presence of cheaters.
