Abstract
We discuss how agents can support collaborative planning activities within coalitions, where coalition partners plan and act according to given policies. In a set of experiments with human test subjects, we investigate how agents can aid such a collaborative planning effort and how effective they are in the chosen support modes.

Keywords
