Last Call for Papers: Linguistic Insights from and for Multimodal Language Processing

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 datasets
    ▪    Analysis and discussion of shortcomings of existing multimodal language models
    ▪    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
    ▪    Opinion pieces and (theoretical) reflections on multimodality in
NLP/Computational Linguistics

Keynote Speakers
Sandro Pezzelle, University of Amsterdam
Letitia Parcalabescu, Heidelberg University
