Workshop Modeling in the Age of Large Language Models  (LLM4Modeling)

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

Date: 12 March 2024

Location: HPI Potsdam, Germany

Registration: (tbd)

Deadline for Submissions: 22 January 2024 (extended)

Notification: 31 January 2024

Camera-ready versions: 15 Feb 2024

Submissions via EasyChair:

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?

There are three types of submissions possible: Full papers, short papers and talk abstracts. Full paper submissions can be up to 15 pages long, including the list of references; short papers up to 10 pages and talk abstracts only consist of a title and an extended abstract of a talk (max. 2 pages). All submissions have to conform to the LNI LaTeX template. All contributions will be reviewed by at least 2 members of the program committee; accepted submissions will be published in a joint conference proceedings in the Digital Library of the German Informatics society (GI e. V.)
