Last Call for Papers: Linguistic Insights from and for Multimodal
Language Processing @KONVENS 2023
Processing multimodal information (like visual representations of the
environment, auditory cues, images, gestures, gaze etc.) and integrating
them is a constant and effortless process in human language processing.
Recent progress in the area of language & vision, large-scale visually
grounded language models, and multimodal learning have led to
breakthroughs in challenging multimodal NLP applications like image–text
retrieval, image captioning or visual question answering. Yet, modeling
the semantics and pragmatics of situated language understanding and
generation and, generally, language processing beyond the linguistic
context, i.e. in combination with multiple other modalities, is still
one of the biggest challenges in NLP and Computational Linguistics.
While there have been recent venues and workshops targeting multimodal
representation learning and large-scale Language and Vision models,
there is a lack of discussion in the community that focuses on
linguistic multimodal phenomena, domain- and task-specific analyses of
multimodality and, generally, contributions of computational linguistics
to multimodal learning and vice versa. With this workshop, we aim to
bring together researchers who work on various linguistic aspects of
multimodal language processing to discuss and share the recent advances
in this interdisciplinary field.
Topics of interest:
▪ New multimodal datasets and training schemes in text and dialogue
▪ Multimodal tasks and frameworks in CL
▪ Annotation of multimodal datasets
▪ Modeling and analysis of linguistic phenomena in multimodal
▪ Analysis and discussion of shortcomings of existing multimodal
▪ Approaches to multimodality in different domains, e.g.,
documents, social media, visual dialogue, situated dialogue, etc.
▪ Work on cross-modal and inter-modal representations,
relationships, and dependencies
▪ Opinion pieces and (theoretical) reflections on multimodality
in NLP/Computational Linguistics
