Call for Papers
LREC 2016 Workshop
Computer vision and language processing
24 May 2016, Grand Hotel Bernardin Conference Center, Portorož, Slovenia
Submission deadline: 12 February, 2016
The creation of a multimodal corpus involves the recording, annotation and analysis of several communication modalities such as speech, hand gesture, facial expression, body posture, gaze, etc. An increasing number of research areas have transgressed or are in the process of transgressing from focused single modality research to full-fledged multimodality research, and multimodal corpora are becoming a core research asset and an opportunity for interdisciplinary exchange of ideas, concepts and data.
We are pleased to announce that in 2016, the 11th Workshop on Multimodal Corpora will once again be collocated with LREC [Language Resources and Evaluation Conference]
As always, we aim for a wide cross-section of the field, with contributions ranging from collection efforts, coding, validation, and analysis methods to tools and applications of multimodal corpora. Success stories of corpora that have provided insights into both applied and basic research are welcome, as are presentations of design discussions, methods and tools. This year, we would also like to pay special attention to the integration of computer vision and language processing techniques – a combination that is becoming increasingly important as the accessible video and speech data increases. The special theme for this instalment of Multimodal Corpora is how processing techniques for vision and language can be combined to manage, search, and process digital content.
This workshop follows previous events held at LREC 00, 02, 04, 06, 08, 10, ICMI 11, LREC 2012, IVA 2013, and LREC 2014. All workshops are documented under www.multimodal-corpora.org and complemented by a special issue of the Journal of Language Resources and Evaluation which came out in 2008, a state-of-the-art book published by Springer in 2009 and a special issue of the Journal of Multimodal User Interfaces under publication. This year, some of the contributors, along with selected contributors from 2009 up until now, will be invited to submit an extended version for a new publication gathering recent research in the area.
The LREC’2016 workshop on multimodal corpora will feature a special session on the combination of processing techniques for vision and language.
