Submission of Abstracts: -----------------------------------

The Vision & Language Workshop organisers invite the submission of abstracts addressing any aspect of research that involves both vision and language.

We encourage a wide range of different types of abstracts/posters, including but not limited to the following:

* Presentations of existing projects and research programmes * Outlines of project ideas, in particular from those seeking collaborators * Reports of research in progress * Reports of research results * System demos

Specific research topics include, but are by no means 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 * Text-to-image generation * Language-driven animation * Facial animation for speech * Assistive methodologies

Accepted abstracts will be presented at the workshop in the form of brief 'teaser' presentations, followed by a poster presentation during the workshop poster session.

In addition, the V&L Net Steering Committee will select six papers to be presented as 15 minute oral presentations. These will be papers that would particularly benefit from oral presentation. It is expected that these will be mainly on existing research, but the research does not necessarily have to be completed. Authors of papers selected for oral presentation will still have the option of additionally presenting their work in poster form.

Submission Guidelines: -----------------------------------

Submitted abstracts should be 1-2 pages in length. PDF format is strongly preferred. Please send abstracts no later than 23 November 2012 to vl-net at brighton.ac.uk.

Mini-posters for WLTM Notice Board: -----------------------------------

Delegates are furthermore encouraged to bring along to the workshop A3-sized mini-posters for our would-like-to-meet notice board. The idea is for mini-posters to describe collaborations sought, profile research groups, advertise publications, and similar items.
