The 27th IEEE International Conference on Tools with Artificial Intelligence (ICTAI 2015) was held in November 9-11, 2015, in Vietri sul Mare, Italy.

Weijie Zheng, who is a PhD student from HPGC group, attended the conference and made the presentation titled "Targeted Mutation: A novel Mutation Strategy for Differential Evolution". This work has proposed a novel basic mutation strategy with a competitive performance against the two popular basic mutation strategies.

ICTAI provides a major international forum where the creation and exchange of ideas related to artificial intelligence are fostered among academia, industry, and government agencies. The conference facilitates the cross-fertilization of these ideas and promotes their transfer into practical tools, for developing intelligent systems and pursuing artificial intelligence applications.
