Final Call for Papers
Workshop on Vision and Language (WVL) 2013
NAACL HLT 2013
June 14 2013, Atlanta, Georgia

NOTE: The deadline has been extended to March 7
------------------------------------------------------------

WORKSHOP SCOPE AND TOPICS
There is an increasing amount of research at the interfaces of speech
and language processing and computer vision, computer graphics,
robotics and information retrieval which aims to develop systems that
automatically generate descriptions of images or videos, or generate
images based on natural language descriptions, acquire and understand
language in a perceptually grounded, visual context, or perform
language-based image search. The purpose of this workshop is to bring
researchers from these communities together.

CALL FOR PAPERS
We solicit full papers of 6-8 pages, plus additional pages for
references, on topics such as
- language-based description of images and videos
- text-to-scene generation
- visually grounded language acquisition and understanding
- language-based image and video search
- linguistic descriptions of spatial relations
We are particularly interested in exploratory work ('brave new ideas')
and position papers.

Submissions must be formatted using the NAACL HLT 2013 style files
and submitted as PDF files to our START site
