The 3rd LANTERN workshop will be happening at EACL 2021. Please find the CfP below.

------------------------------------------------------------ ------------------------ LANTERN workshop at EACL 2021 ------------------------------------------------------------ ------------------------ Kyiv, Ukraine (virtual due to COVID 19 crisis) -- April 19-20, 2021 Workshop website: https://www.lantern.uni-saarland.de/2021/ ------------------------------------------ ABOUT THE WORKSHOP ------------------------------------------ LANTERN: The Third Workshop Beyond Vision and LANguage: InTEgrating Real World KNowledge

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 aim to 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 source.

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

------------------------------------------ IMPORTANT DATES ------------------------------------------ - Deadline for submission: Jan 18, 2021 - Notification of acceptance: Feb 18, 2021 - Deadline for camera-ready version: Mar 1, 2021 - Workshop date: April 19 or 20, 2021 (tba) - All deadlines are calculated at 11:59pm Pacific Daylight Savings Time (UTC - 12h)

----------------------------------------------- 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/eacl2021/LANTERN2021/)

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 EACL 2021 formatting requirements using either Word or LaTeX template files provided by EACL 2021 (https://2021.eacl.org/calls/papers/).

- Long paper submission: up to 8 pages of content (+1 on acceptance), plus bibliography - Short paper submission: up to 4 pages of content (+1 on acceptance), plus bibliography
