  abstract =     "Vehicle dispatching consists of allocating real-time
                 service requests to a fleet of moving vehicles. In this
                 paper, each vehicle is associated with a vector of
                 attribute values that describes its current situation
                 with respect to new incoming service requests. Using
                 this attribute description, a utility function aimed at
                 approximating the decision process of a professional
                 dispatcher is constructed through genetic programming.
                 Computational results are reported on requests
                 collected from a courier service company and a
                 comparison is provided with a neural network model and
                 a simple dispatching policy.",
