Workshop on Language, Action and Perception (APL)

October 25, 2012, Lund, Sweden


The Workshop on Language, Action and Perception (APL) is intended to a
be a networking and community building event for researchers that are
interested in any form of interaction of natural language with the
physical world in a computational framework. Both theoretical and
practical proposals are welcome. Example areas include semantic theories
of human language, action and perception, situated dialogue, situated
language acquisition, grounding of language in action and perception,
spatial cognition, generation and interpretation of scene descriptions
from images and videos, integrated robotic systems and others. We would
also like to welcome researchers from computer vision and robotic
communities who are increasingly using linguistic representations such
as ontologies to improve image interpretation, object recognition,
localisation and navigation.
