Abstract

We provide a brief description of the GOAL-DTU system, including the overall design, the tools and the algorithms that we used in the Multi-Agent Programming Contest 2013. We focus on a description of the strategies and on an analysis of the matches. We also evaluate our experiences with the GOAL agent programming language. Our strategies worked well in general and we earned a second place in the contest only losing to the winning team. Finally we provide some suggestions for future contests.
