  abstract =     "There is still an urgent need of finding a
                 mathematical model which can provide an accurate
                 relationship between the software project effort/cost
                 and the cost drivers. A powerful algorithm which can
                 optimize such a relationship via developing a
                 mathematical relationship between model variables is
                 urgently needed. In this paper, we explore the use of
                 Genetic Programming (GP) to develop a software cost
                 estimation model using the effect of both the developed
                 line of code and the used methodology during the
                 development. An application of estimating the effort
                 for some NASA software projects is introduced. The
                 performance of the developed GP based model was tested
                 and compared to known models in the literature. The
                 developed GP model was able to provide valuable
                 estimation capabilities compared to other models.",
