WHAT, WHERE, WHEN

------------------------------------

LANTERN workshop @EMNLP-IJCNLP 2019

Hong Kong -- Nov 2019, 3 or 4 (to be announced yet)

-------------------------------------

ABOUT THE WORKSHOP

-------------------------------------

The First Workshop Beyond Vision and LANguage: InTEgrating Real World KNowledge (LANTERN) <https://www.lantern.uni-saarland.de/>

What is LANTERN? Language is acquired, used, and evaluated by understanding the world around us. It is thus essential to capture such an understanding by exploiting knowledge from sources that are useful for grounding language. Recent work showed the potential of visually-grounded language in addressing task-specific challenges (e.g., visual captioning, VQA, dialog, etc.). In this workshop, we go beyond the task-specific integration of language and vision and encourage submissions that leverage knowledge from external sources that are either provided by an environment or some fixed knowledge. (See the website for more details).

-------------------------------------

TOPICS OF INTEREST

-------------------------------------

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

-

Application of language and vision to robotics

-

Cognitively- and neuroscience-driven vision and language learning

(eye-tracking, fMRI, etc.)

-

Common-sense knowledge acquisition from vision

-

Enhancing visual perception with language and structured knowledge

-

Human-robot interaction with language understanding and visual perception

-

Integration of vision and language by building cross-modal relationship

networks

-

Integrated models of real-world knowledge, vision, and language for

generating context-sensitive embeddings

-

Language and vision for learning games

-

Learning of quantities from vision

-

Multi-task learning for integration of language and vision

-

Reasoning with language to improve visual perception

-

Text-to-Image (natural, sketch, synthetic) generation with external

knowledge

-

Theoretical understanding of limitations in the integration of vision

and language

-

Visual dialog, captioning and Q&A by incorporating

common-sense/real-world knowledge

-

Other novel tasks which combine language and vision with means of

external knowledge

SUBMISSION INSTRUCTIONS

-------------------------------------

We solicit two categories of papers: long and short workshop papers that will be included in the workshop proceedings as archival publications. All submissions should be in PDF format and made through the Softconf link ( https://www.softconf.com/emnlp2019/ws-LANTERN/)

Submissions will go through a double-blind review process, where each submission is reviewed by at-least two program committee members. Accepted papers will be presented by the authors in a regular workshop session either as a talk or a poster.

All submissions must be written in English and follow the EMNLP-IJCNLP 2019 formatting requirements using either Word or LaTeX template files provided by EMNLP-IJCNLP 2019 (https://www.emnlp-ijcnlp2019.org/).

* Long paper submission: up to 8 pages of content, plus 2 pages for references; final versions of long papers: one additional page (so that reviewer’s comments can be taken into account): up to 9 pages with unlimited pages for references

* Short paper submission: up to 4 pages of content, plus 2 pages for references; final version of short papers: up to 5 pages with unlimited pages for references.
