  abstract =     "At RoboCup, teams of autonomous robots or software
                 softbots compete in simulated soccer matches to
                 demonstrate cooperative robotics techniques in a very
                 difficult, real-time, noisy environment. At the
                 IJCAI/RoboCup97 softbot competition, all entries but
                 ours used human-crafted cooperative decision-making
                 behaviors. We instead entered a softbot team whose
                 high-level decision making behaviors had been entirely
                 evolved using genetic programming. Our team won its
                 first two games against human-crafted opponent teams,
                 and received the RoboCup Scientific Challenge Award.
                 This report discusses the issues we faced and the
                 approach we took to use GP to evolve our robot soccer
                 team for this difficult environment.",
  notes =        "GP-98 This paper is similar to an earlier workshop
                 paper \cite{luke:1997:csstcGP}. The key difference
                 being that the workshop paper, which was not for a
                 Genetic Programming audience, is short on experimental
                 details and long on introductions to how GP works.
                 There also exists a short invited paper
                 \cite{luke:1998:sretro} detailing how this experiment
                 could have been improved. Also available is a short
                 sidebar for an AI Magazine article.",
