GPTMB 2024 - The First International Conference on Generative Pre-trained Transformer Models and Beyond

June 30, 2024 - July 04, 2024

GPTMB 2024: Call for Papers
Onsite and Online Options: In order to accommodate a large number of situations, we are offering the option for either physical presence or virtual participation (pdf slides or pre-recorded videos).

The advances on Machine Learning (ML) and Deep Learning (DL) change the nature of summarization and text generation. GPTM (Generative Pre-trained Transformer Models) are ML models that use DL techniques to generate natural language text. As for any model, the accuracy of the output is driven by the quality of input data (sensitivity, specificity) and the processing mechanisms.

The current achievements were warmly received by industrial media corporations and scientist communities. At the same time several aspects related to trust, bias, liability, and regulations because of the high probability of spreading untrue and difficultly to be cross-checked output.

GPTM focuses on advanced topics on GPTM and AI/Deep Learning and target the challenges of using at large scale of GPTM-based tools.  The event considers the research works and the current challenges including input data, process truthfulness, impact on existing human perception, and lessons learned from experiments.

We solicit both academic, research, and industrial contributions. We welcome technical papers presenting research and practical results, position papers addressing the pros and cons of specific proposals, such as those being discussed in the standard fora or in industry consortia, survey papers addressing the key problems and solutions on any of the above topics short papers on work in progress, and panel proposals.

Industrial presentations are not subject to the format and content constraints of regular submissions. We expect short and long presentations that express industrial position and status.

Tutorials on specific related topics and panels on challenging areas are encouraged.

The topics suggested by the conference can be discussed in term of concepts, state of the art, research, standards, implementations, running experiments, applications, and industrial case studies. Authors are invited to submit complete unpublished papers, which are not under review in any other conference or journal in the following, but not limited to, topic areas.

All topics and submission formats are open to both research and industry contributions.

FORMATS

Only .pdf or .doc files will be accepted for paper submission. All received submissions will be acknowledged via an automated system.

Final author manuscripts will be 8.5" x 11", not exceeding 6 pages; max 4 extra pages allowed at additional cost. Helpful information for paper formatting can be found here. Latex templates are also available.

Slides-based contributions can use the corporate/university format and style.

Your paper should also comply with the additional editorial rules.

Once you receive the notification of contribution acceptance, you will be provided by the publisher an online author kit with all the steps an author needs to follow to submit the final version. The author kits URL will be included in the letter of acceptance.

We would recommend that you should not use too many extra pages, even if you can afford the extra fees. No more than 2 contributions per event are recommended, as each contribution must be separately registered and paid for. At least one author of each accepted paper must register to ensure that the paper will be included in the conference proceedings and in the digital library, or posted on the www.iaria.org (for slide-based contributions).
