  abstract =     "Games make excellent challenge problems for Artificial
                 Intelligence. Two-player turn-based games (Backgammon,
                 Checkers, Chess) are easy to program, and AI players
                 can be benchmarked against humans of varying skill
                 levels. Recently, more complicated real-time team games
                 have received attention because of their dynamic
                 environments and the necessity for coordination. The
                 RoboCup Soccer Simulator is the most popular and
                 well-known of these environments. However, the soccer
                 simulator is restricted to only two dimensions, and
                 does not realistically model physics. In 2001, Spector
                 et al. proposed creating a simulator of the imaginary
                 game Quidditch from the Harry Potter Books by J.K.
                 Rowling. This article describes such a simulator and
                 the coevolved quidditch-playing teams created for it
                 using Genetic Programming.",
