V&L Net Workshop on Language for Vision

*** Note extended deadline: March 24th ***


Fragments of natural language, in the form of tags, captions, 
subtitles, surrounding text or audio, can aid the interpretation of 
image and video data by adding context or disambiguating 
visual appearance. In addition, labelled images are essential for 
training object or activity classifiers. For this reason, there is a 
growing interest in exploiting language understanding in order to help 
solve problems in computer vision.

The EPSRC Network on Vision and Language (V&L Net - 
http://www.vlnet.org.uk/) has been set up to foster collaborative work 
in this area. It is a forum for researchers from the fields of 
Computer Vision and Natural Language Processing to meet, exchange 
ideas, expertise and technology, and form new partnerships. The aim is 
to create a lasting interdisciplinary research community situated at 
the language-vision interface, jointly working towards solutions for 
some of today's most challenging computational challenges, including 
image and video search, description of visual content and 
text-to-image generation.

Papers are invited that describe novel research in which language is 
used to help solve a vision problem or where using language and vision 
together offers improved performance over using one alone. We also 
welcome papers describing new datasets or benchmarks for 
language-assisted computer vision.

Topics of interest include (but are not limited to):

* Image and video labelling and annotation
* Image and video description
* Computational modelling of human vision and language
* Image and video retrieval
* Multimodal human-computer communication
* Automatic text illustration
* Language-driven animation
* Facial animation from speech
* Assistive methodologies
* Text-to-image generation
