  abstract =     "The aim of this work is to show that evolutionary
                 computation techniques (genetic programming in this
                 case) can be used to evolve coordination in real-time
                 strategy games. An abstract real-time strategy game is
                 used for our experiments, similar to a board game but
                 with many of the properties that define real-time
                 strategy games. We develop an automated player that
                 uses a progressive refinement planning technique when
                 determining its next immediate turn in our abstract
                 real-time strategy game. We describe two types of
                 coordination which we believe are important in the game
                 and then define measurements for both. We perform
                 twenty co-evolutionary runs for our automated player
                 and then analyse the history of each run with respect
                 to the success of the solutions found and their level
                 of coordination. We wish to show that as the
                 evolutionary process progresses both the quality and
                 the level of coordination in the solutions found
