CALL FOR PARTICIPATION

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) 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.
