  abstract =     "We present some conclusions related to the use of
                 classical regression, neural networks (NN) and genetic
                 programming (GP) for software cost estimation. Although
                 the estimates of classical regression can be improved
                 by NN and GP, the results are not impressive. We
                 conclude that either data points limit the usefulness
                 of the methods, or that better ways have to be found
                 for applying soft-computing techniques for software
                 cost estimation.",
