About THe Event

Empowering Innovators in LLM Technology

Join us and share your research including work-in-progress research with other researchers and practitioners and learn new things together.
Let’s mold our thinking with new knowledge from feedback from colleagues.
Let’s share our thoughts to improve the quality of colleagues’ research.
At ICIIT Conclave 2024, we aim to drive research and innovation in Large Language Models to revolutionize business and education sectors.

  • A workshop on LLMs and to share the knowledge with the research community 
  • A panel discussion led by some industry experts as to the steps to take such ideas to the next level
  • A shared task to be distributed among many groups/teams and requesting them to submit their intended solutions to develop the ideas further into a fully-fledged startup
  • Tutorials tailored for beginners with little to no coding experience and for practitioners
  • Selection of best ideas, and use cases that can developed further as future potential startups

We are planning to have a workshop in LLMs run by our partner, Robert Gordon University of the UK. We will get resource persons from there to run the workshop.
The aim of this workshop is to explore opportunities for integrating Large Language Models (LLMs) into your applications and with other AI methodologies. We anticipate that these synergies will foster a deeper understanding of their combined potential.

This workshop will present an excellent opportunity for researchers and practitioners to discuss and share their insights on this new, exciting, and rapidly evolving field of AI. We look forward to your contributions and an engaging and informative workshop.

Meanwhile, we have called for abstracts or Work-in-progress papers in the area from academics in all Universities and also researchers from the industry. This is to analyze the current work that is going on with a view to helping develop some startup companies in the commercially viable projects identified.
The panel discussion will be with some industry experts to showcase their experience in helping such ideas to be further developed into full-fledged projects or applications.
