2nd Workshop Modeling in the Age of Large Language Models  (LLM4Modeling) at ER'2024

Organizers: Hans-Georg Fill (University of Fribourg), Peter Fettke (DFKI and Saarland University ), Julius Köpke (University of Klagenfurt)

Date: October 28-31, 2024

Location: Collocated with the 43rd International Conference on Conceptual Modeling (ER'2024) in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA

Workshop Description:

Large language models (LLM) have received enormous attention in practice and science since ChatGPT at the latest. It is obvious that the use of LLM has the potential to quickly develop some rudimentary aspects of a domain model. However, it is unclear in which precision and quality this might be possible. The question is how modeling deals with LLM in the future. Which influence will LLM have on modeling? How will the tasks of modeling change? Will modeling lose its importance? Or, the other way around, will modeling increase its importance in the future?

The workshop aims at illuminating potentials and challenges of LLM in modeling. The following topics are addressed by the workshop (list is not exhaustive):

  • What are the potentials of LLM for modeling?
  • How are modeling results evaluated with LLM?
  • How are LLM embedded in well-known tools?
  • How can LLM be used in teaching for modeling?
  • What new modeling tasks are emerging? How do modeling tasks change?

Registration: (tba)

Deadline for Submissions: July 27, 2024

Notification: August 11, 2024

Camera-ready versions: September 9, 2024

Submissions via EasyChair

Submit papers via EasyChair for ER 2024 to the “LLM4Modeling Workshop Papers” Track.

Since the proceedings will be published by Springer in the LNCS series, authors must submit manuscripts using the LNCS style or Overleaf. The page limit is 16 pages (excluding one page references). Papers will be judged on contribution, literature basis, novelty, clarity, relevance, and rigor. The review process is double-blind. Submissions must be anonymized

Special Issue in EMISAJ

It is planned to organize a special issue after the workshop in the Enterprise Modelling and Information Systems Architectures (EMISAJ) – International Journal of Conceptual Modeling. Papers accepted for the workshop will receive the option for a fast-track review process.
