Workshop on Language, Action and Perception (APL)

Red Rome apple

SLTC workshop, October 25, 2012, Lund, Sweden

Call for papers

The Workshop on Language, Action and Perception (APL) is intended to a be a networking and community building event for researchers that are interested in any form of interaction of natural language with the physical world in a computational framework. Both theoretical and practical proposals are welcome. Example areas include semantic theories of human language, action and perception, situated dialogue, situated language acquisition, grounding of language in action and perception, spatial cognition, generation and interpretation of scene descriptions from images and videos, integrated robotic systems and others. We would also like to welcome researchers from computer vision and robotic communities who are increasingly using linguistic representations such as ontologies to improve image interpretation, object recognition, localisation and navigation.
