  abstract =     "This paper investigates Genetic Programming (GP) as a
                 method to facilitate better software cost modeling and
                 estimation. The aim is to produce and examine candidate
                 solutions which use operators and operands, which are
                 then used in algorithmic cost estimation. These
                 solutions essentially constitute regression equations
                 of software cost factors, used to effectively estimate
                 the dependent variable, that is, the effort spent for
                 developing software projects. The GP application
                 generates representative rules through which the
                 usefulness of various project characteristics as
                 explanatory variables, and ultimately as predictors of
                 development effort is investigated. The experiments
                 conducted are based on two publicly available empirical
                 datasets typically used in software cost estimation and
                 indicate that the proposed approach provides consistent
                 and successful results.",
