  abstract =     "We introduce a bi-objective effort estimation
                 algorithm that combines Confidence Interval Analysis
                 and assessment of Mean Absolute Error. We evaluate our
                 proposed algorithm on three different alternative
                 formulations, baseline comparators and current
                 state-of-the-art effort estimators applied to five
                 real-world datasets from the PROMISE repository,
                 involving 724 different software projects in total. The
                 results reveal that our algorithm outperforms the
                 baseline, state-of-the-art and all three alternative
                 formulations, statistically significantly and with
                 large effect size over all five datasets. We also
                 provide evidence that our algorithm creates a new
                 state-of-the-art, which lies within currently claimed
                 industrial human-expert-based thresholds, thereby
                 demonstrating that our findings have actionable
                 conclusions for practising software engineers.",
