  abstract =     "Finding optimal or at least good monitoring strategies
                 is an important consideration when designing an agent.
                 We have applied genetic programming to this task, with
                 mixed results. Since the agent control language was
                 kept purposefully general, the set of monitoring
                 strategies constitutes only a small part of the overall
                 space of possible behaviours. Because of this, it was
                 often difficult for the genetic algorithm to evolve
                 them, even though their performance was superior. These
                 results raise questions as to how easy it will be for
                 genetic programming to scale up as the areas it is
                 applied to become more complex.",

                 moved to the goal without colliding with an obstacle.
