The International Workshop on Sustainable AI for Natural Language Processing (SusAI 2024)

26-29 November, 2024 | Dubai, UAE

Colocated with

The 2nd International Conference on Foundation and Large Language Models (FLLM2024)

The International Workshop on Sustainable AI for Natural Language Processing (SusAI 2024)

Call for Papers

Many recent research efforts aim at developing models able to present results as accurate as Foundation Models and Large Language Models and, at the same time, that can be trained, stored and run with limited computational resources. SusAI workshop aims at gathering researchers, present new trends and highlight new ideas about sustainable AI. In particular, it will present approaches, both at the training and at the inference levels, for obtaining lighter models, requiring less energy for training and/or able to be run on edge devices.

Significant topics are related, but not limited to, different techniques and methods aiming at developing models going towards sustainable AI, which can be applied across a wide range of use cases, with particular regard to Natural Language Processing tasks:

  • Data scaling and data sampling
  • Hyperparameters optimization
  • Memory-efficient model architectures
  • Model pruning
  • Knowledge distillation
  • Quantization
  • Matrix decomposition
  • Neuro-morphic paradigm
  • Quantum computing

Authors Submission Guidelines:

Submission Site:

Paper format

Submitted papers (.pdf format) must use the A4 IEEE Manuscript Templates for Conference Proceedings. Please remember to add Keywords to your submission.


Submitted papers may be 6 to 8 pages. Up to two additional pages may be added for references. The reference pages must only contain references. Overlength papers will be rejected without review.


Papers submitted to GenAISE must be the original work of the authors. The may not be simultaneously under review elsewhere. Publications that have been peer-reviewed and have appeared at other conferences or workshops may not be submitted to GenAISE. Authors should be aware that IEEE has a strict policy with regard to plagiarism The authors' prior work must be cited appropriately.

Author list

Please ensure that you submit your papers with the full and final list of authors in the correct order. The author list registered for each submission is not allowed to be changed in any way after the paper submission deadline.


Please proofread your submission carefully. It is essential that the language use in the paper is clear and correct so that it is easily understandable. (Either US English or UK English spelling conventions are acceptable.)


All accepted papers in GenAISE 2024 and FLLM 2024 will be submitted to IEEEXplore for possible publication.


The program will be announced with the FLLM 2024 program at
