  abstract =     "This paper presents the application of a computational
                 intelligence methodology in effort estimation for
                 software projects. Namely, we apply a genetic
                 programming model for symbolic regression; aiming to
                 produce mathematical expressions that (1) are highly
                 accurate and (2) can be used for estimating the
                 development effort by revealing relationships between
                 the project's features and the required work. We
                 selected to investigate the effectiveness of this
                 methodology into two software engineering domains. The
                 system was proved able to generate models in the form
                 of handy mathematical expressions that are more
                 accurate than those found in literature.",
