*LANTERN workshop at COLING 2020*

*Barcelona, Spain -- September 14, 2020Workshop website: https://www.lantern.uni-saarland.de/2020/ <https://www.lantern.uni-saarland.de/2020/>------------------------------------------ABOUT THE WORKSHOP ------------------------------------------LANTERN: The Second Workshop Beyond Vision and LANguage: InTEgrating Real World KNowledge <https://www.lantern.uni-saarland.de/2020>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. Our motto: When you are groping in the dark, knowledge gives you the light!------------------------------------------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: May 20, 2020Notification of acceptance: June 24, 2020Deadline for camera-ready version: July 11, 2020Workshop date: September 14, 2020All deadlines are calculated at 11:59pm Pacific Daylight Savings Time (UTC - 12h)------------------------------------------INVITED SPEAKERS------------------------------------------ - Yonatan Bisk, Microsoft Research & CMU- Gemma Boleda, Universitat Pompeu Fabra & ICREA- Angeliki Lazaridou, DeepMind- Stefan Lee, Oregon State University-----------------------------------------------SUBMISSION INSTRUCTIONS-----------------------------------------------We solicit two categories of papers: long and short workshop papers that will be included in the workshop proceedings as archival publications.
