Special Session Ⅱ: Responsible LLMs for Reasoning


Session Chair: Assoc. Prof. Kun Zhang——Hefei University of Technology, China

Assoc. Prof. Kai Zhang——University of Science and Technology of China, China


Key Words: responsible large language models; large model reasoning; knowledge reasoning; causal reasoning


Special Session Information:

In the era of large language models represented by GPT and ChatGPT, responsible generative artificial intelligence technologies are crucial because they can greatly affect the quality of content generated by large language models. AI algorithms such as ChatGPT, GPT, and BARD are designed to learn from large amounts of data and make inferential responses based on semantic correlations found in the data. While this could lead to significant advances in areas such as healthcare, transportation and finance, it could also lead to unintended consequences if developed irresponsibly. In the case of ChatGPT, responsible reasoning with LLMs means ensuring that large language models are not used to spread disinformation, perpetuate harmful stereotypes, or engage in unethical behavior. This field has huge potential to bring positive economic and social impact and build a responsible and sustainable AI future.


This special topic aims to attract manuscripts closely related to responsible LLMs. Potential topics of interest include but are not limited to:

Special Session Ⅲ: Intelligent Media Content Detection, Analysis, and Generation in the AIGC Era


Session Chair: Assoc. Prof. Lianwei Wu——Northwestern Polytechnical University, China


Key Words: Intelligent Media Analysis, AI-generated Content Detection, Multimodal Content analysis, Multimodal Content Generation


Special Session Information:

The rapid development of generative AI has led to the evolution of UGC-centered social media towards AIGC-centered intelligent media. AIGC has not only brought positive changes such as AI assisted writing to intelligent media, but also brought negative impacts such as AI information pollution. Therefore, intelligent media content detection, analysis, and generation are particularly important in the AIGC era.

Special Session Ⅳ: Multimodal Emotion and Cognitive Computing


Session Chair: Assoc. Prof. Bo Xu——Dalian University of Technology, China


Key Words: Emotion Detection, Cognitive Computing, Natural Language Processing, Multimodal Fusion, Sentiment Analysis, Affective Computing


Special Session Information:

Multimodal Emotion and Cognitive Computing is an interdisciplinary field that merges cognitive computing techniques with the analysis of emotions across various modes of communication. By integrating methodologies from fields such as natural language processing, computer vision, and affective computing, this area aims to develop advanced systems capable of understanding and responding to human emotions expressed through multiple channels. These systems employ sophisticated algorithms to process multimodal data, including text, audio, image, and video, enabling them to discern emotional cues and cognitive patterns. The research in this domain holds promise for applications ranging from human-computer interaction and personalized services to mental health monitoring and sentiment analysis in social media.

Special Session Ⅴ: Multimodal Large Language Model and Its Application in the Field of Transportation


Session Chair: Assoc. Prof. Wenjuan Han——Beijing Jiaotong University, China


Key Words: Multimodality, Large Language Model, Transportation, Application, Technology


Special Session Information:

The transportation field is undergoing a significant revolution driven by artificial intelligence (AI). Multimodal Large Language Models (MLLMs), a novel class of AI models, are poised to play a pivotal role in this transformation. These models can process and understand information from various sources, including text, images, and videos, making them uniquely suited to address the complex challenges of modern transportation systems.

This session will delve into the exciting world of MLLMs and explore their diverse technologies and applications within the transportation field. We will:

* Demystify MLLMs: Gain a foundational understanding of MLLMs, grasp their capabilities, and new technologies.

* Explore Real-World Applications: Discover how MLLMs are being used to enhance various aspects of transportation, from intelligent traffic management and personalized route optimization to advanced passenger services and automated vehicle operations.

* Find Challenges and Opportunities: Discuss the key challenges associated with the implementation of MLLMs in transportation, including ethical considerations, data privacy, and infrastructure integration. We will also explore the vast opportunities these models present for building a more efficient, sustainable, and user-centric transportation system.

This session is designed for a wide audience, including transportation professionals, researchers, policymakers, students, and anyone interested in the future of mobility. Whether you are a seasoned expert or just embarking on your journey into this exciting field, this session will provide valuable insights and foster discussions about how MLLMs can shape the future of transportation.

Special Session Ⅵ: Extract information from multimodal documents with handcrafted languages


Session Chair: Xiwen Zhang——Beijing Language and Culture University, China


Key Words: Multimodal Documents, Handwritten Text, Speech Recognition, Language Models, Pattern Recognition, Information Extraction


Special Session Information: 

Human languages can be communicated by speech from speaking and text from writing. Most of them are inherited from handwritten text. Most of handwritten text are mixed with drawings and paintings to present more information. Most speech are mixed with video. The multimodal documents can be analyzed, recognized, understanded by pattern recognition, machine learning, and deep learning. More and more large language models, vision models, and language-vision models, and multimodal models are used to extract more information from the multimodal documents. 

By hosting this session, we look forward to inspiring more valuable scientific discoveries, accelerating the development of multimodal perception, analysis, and generation technologies for handcrafted text and speech, and helping them achieve wider and deeper social language applications.
