International Workshop

Language Resources for Content-based Image Retrieval

Held in conjunction with LREC�??2008




There are two computer-aided methods for accessing images:

    * indexing textual descriptions (done mostly by public retrieval engines)
          o assigned manually on community sharing sites, e.g. Flickr;
          o extracted from the text of the web page associated with the image , e.g. Google
          o extracting textual information inside the image using OCR techniques 
    * indexing low-level visual features (colour, texture, etc.) of the images (called Content Based Image Retrieval - CBIR).  


Combining these two methods is currently a hot topic since it involves developing hybrid approaches using automatic image tagging from text along with low level visual features from an image to produce texknowledge representation, cognitive modelling, problem solving
 mechanisms, etc. The purpose is to pursue a paradigm, unifying the
 different approaches into a common framework capable of explaining how
 constraints play a role in representing, processing and acquiring
 linguistic information, and this from a formal, technical, and cognitive

 Workshop Topics:
 The topics include, but are not limited to, constraint-based linguistic
 theories, constraints in human language comprehension and production,
 context modelling and discourse interpretation, acquisition of constraints,
 probabilistic constraint-based reasoning, constraint satisfaction
 technologies and constraint logic programming.

 Submission details:
 Authors are invited to submit a full paper of up to 12 pages in PDF format.
 The font size must be at least 10 pt when printed on A4 paper.  It is
 recommended that the LaTeX "article" style is used.  Previously published
 papers cannot be accepted.  The submissions will be reviewed by the program
 committee.  The accepted papers will appear in the workshop proceedings
 published by ESSLLI.  One author for each accepted paper must attend the
 workshop in order to present the paper.  A volume at an international
 publisher will be considered for selected and revised papers, if number and
 quality of submissions permits.
 Please use the CSLP 2008 submission page handled by the EasyChair
 conference system: http://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=CSLP2008

 Workshop format:
 The workshop is part of ESSLLI and is open to all ESSLLI participants.
 It will consist of five 90-minute sessions held over five consecutive days
 in the second week of ESSLLI.
