CVPR 2013 WORKSHOP V&L Net Workshop on Language for Vision June
23rd, Portland, Oregon URL: http://www.cs.york.ac.uk/L4V/


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 -
http://www.vlnet.org.uk/) 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

Papers are invited that describe novel research in which language
is used to help solve a vision problem or where using language
and vision together offers improved performance over using one
alone. We also welcome papers describing new datasets or
benchmarks for language-assisted computer vision.

Topics of interest include (but are not 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
* Automatic text illustration
* Language-driven animation
* Facial animation from speech
* Assistive methodologies
* Text-to-image generation
