V&L Net Workshop on Vision and Language ======================================= CALL FOR PARTICIPATION Endorsed by BMVA (the British Machine Vision Association) and EACL (the European Chapter of the Association for Computational Linguistics) Date: Thursday, 15 September 2011 Venue: Huxley Building, University of Brighton Invited Speakers: Yiannis Aloimonos, University of Maryland Ted Briscoe, University of Cambridge Roy Davies, Royal Holloway, University of London Khurshid Ahmad, Trinity College Dublin Accepted Posters: see below The EPSRC Network on Vision and Language (V&L Net) -------------------------------------------------- The EPSRC Network on Vision and Language (V&L Net) is a forum for researchers from the fields of Computer Vision and Language Processing to meet, exchange ideas, expertise and technology, and form new partnerships. Our aim is to create a lasting interdisciplinary research community situated at the language-vision interface, jointly working towards solutions for some of today's toughest computational challenges, including image and video search, description of visual content and text-to-image generation. Workshop Aims ------------- The Vision and Language Workshop is chiefly intended to be a networking and community building event for the computer vision and language processing communities. It will give us an opportunity to meet and get to know each other. This process will be supported by an informal approach characterised by diverse networking activities and a large number of brief oral presentations combined with poster presentations. The Vision and Language Workshop is free for full V&L Net members. V&L Net will furthermore cover the cost of one night's accommodation in Brighton and economy-class travel within the UK for full V&L Net members presenting an accepted poster. Full details can be found on the workshop page on the V&L Net website (for contact details see below). Call for Participation ---------------------- The Vision & Language Workshop organisers invite researchers with an interest in computer vision and language processing to register for the workshop by sending an email to vl-net_(at)_brighton.ac.uk giving name, affiliation and primary research interests. Mini-posters for WLTM Notice Board ---------------------------------- Delegates are furthermore encouraged to bring along to the workshop A3-sized mini-posters for our would-like-to-meet notice board. The idea is for mini-posters to describe collaborations sought, profile research groups, advertise publications, and similar items. Outline Programme ----------------- 09:00-13:00 Morning Session Introduction and Welcome Invited Talks: Yiannis Aloimonos, University of Maryland: Robots need language: A computational model for the integration of vision, action and language Ted Briscoe, University of Cambridge: Integrating textual information extraction and visual similarity search for biomedical research papers Invited CV Overview Talk: Roy Davies, Royal Holloway, University of London Invited NLP Overview Talk: Khurshid Ahmad, Trinity College Dublin 13:00-14:00 Lunch Break 14:00-18:00 Afternoon Session Teaser Presentations for Posters (accepted posters see below) Poster Session Would-like-to-meet Notice Board Evening Drinks Accepted Posters: ----------------- Amjad Altadmri and Amr Ahmed: Automatic Semantic Video Annotation in Wide Domain Videos Based on Similarity and Commonsense Knowledge Bases Andrew J.
