NSF-Funded Workshop: Integrating LLMs into the Materials Chemistry Curriculum

Over Feb 12-13 of 2024, the National Science Foundation (NSF) is sponsoring a workshop titled “Integrating LLMs into the Materials Chemistry Curriculum” in Golden, Colorado. We aim to explore and develop innovative ways to incorporate large language models (LLMs, e.g. GPT, ChatGPT, and Bard) into upper division chemistry laboratories and virtual lab experiences. During the workshop, participants will brainstorm and create demonstrations incorporating LLMs into the curriculum.

The event will bring together folks across academia and the private sector with disciplinary backgrounds that range across chemistry, computer science, materials science, physics, and education. There is no registration fee, and we anticipate being able to cover the majority of participant travel costs thanks to NSF support. Participants early in their career (i.e., graduate students, postdoctoral scholars) are particularly encouraged to apply.

If you are interested in participating in this workshop, please google “id4 nsf llm workshop” as I can’t post links here.
Please feel free to distribute this invitation widely.

Welcome to the forum.

Thanks for sharing with us. If you stick around a bit and read / post, you’ll be able to eventually post links on your own.

Good to see you thinking so far ahead, though. Hope you stick around.

Is this online or in person attendance only? :laughing:


It’s an in person meeting, thanks N2U!


Alright, it sounds really interesting would love to participate, but I’m in Denmark, so it’s a tad impractical for me to attend in person :laughing:


I’ve added a link at the bottom of your post, hope it goes well, please feel free to update us with your progress.
