  abstract =     "In this paper we describe a genetic programming
                 approach to the design of a motion-control strategy for
                 a goalkeeper robot created to compete in the RoboCup99,
                 the robot soccer world championships which have been
                 held yearly since 1997, as part of the Italian middle
                 size robot team (ART, Azzurra Robot Team).

                 The evolved program sends a motion command to the
                 robot, based on the analysis of information received
                 from a human-coded vision sub-system. The preliminary
                 results obtained on a simulator are encouraging. They
                 suggest that even using very simple fitness functions
                 and training sets including only a small sub-set of the
                 situations that the goalkeeper is required to tackle,
                 it is possible to evolve a complex behaviour that
                 permits the goalkeeper to perform well also in more
                 challenging real-world conditions.",
