    Behavioral Animation by Constraint-Based Adaptive Search

Session/Category Title:   Avatars and Autonomous Behavior



    This sketch proposes a language for describing behaviors of virtual agents, expressed implicitly as sets of goal constraints to be satisfied, together with an efficient adaptive search method for action selection.
