Meeting Description: V&L Net Workshop on Language for Vision
In conjunction with CVPR, June 23, 2013
Oregon Conference Center, Portland, Oregon

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.

NOTE: The early registration deadline is May 24, 2013.
