— Integrated Vision and AI for Embodied Perception and Interaction

Workshop Chairs:  Mehul Bhatt,  Alessandra Russo,  Parisa Kordjamshidi
The 27th International Joint Conference on Artificial Intelligence and
the 23rd European Conference on Artificial Intelligence (IJCAI-ECAI)

IJCAI-ECAI 2018  /  Stockholm, Sweden

The workshop on COGNITIVE VISION solicits contributions addressing computational vision and perception at the interface of language, logic, cognition, and artificial intelligence. The workshop brings together a novel & unique combination of academics and research methodologies encompassing AI, Cognition, and Interaction. The workshop will feature invited and contributed research advancing the practice of Cognitive Vision particularly from the viewpoints of theories and methods developed within the fields of:

—  Artificial Intelligence
—  Computer Vision
—  Spatial Cognition and Computation
—  Cognitive Science and Psychology
—  Visual Perception
—  Cognitive Linguistics

Application domains being addressed include, but are not limited to:

—  autonomous driving
—  cognitive robotics
—  vision for UAVs
—  visual art, fashion, cultural heritage
—  vision in biology (e.g., animal, plant)
—  vision and VR
—  vision for social science, humanities
—  vision for psychology, human behaviour studies
—  social signal processing, social media
—  remote sensing, GIS
—  medical imaging

The principal emphasis of the workshop is on the integration of vision and artificial intelligence from the viewpoints of embodied perception, interaction, and autonomous control. In addition to basic research questions, the workshop addresses diverse application areas where, for instance, the processing and semantic interpretation of (potentially large volumes of) highly dynamic visuo-spatial imagery is central: autonomous systems, cognitive robotics, medical & biological computing, social media, cultural heritage & art, social media, psychology and behavioural research domains where data-centred analytical methods are gaining momentum. Particular themes of high interest solicited by the workshop include:

—  methodological integrations between Vision and AI
— declarative representation and reasoning about spatio-temporal dynamics
— deep semantics and explainable visual computing (e.g., about space and motion)
— vision and computational models of narrative
— cognitive vision and multimodality (e.g., multimodal semantic interpretation)
— visual perception (e.g., high-level event perception, eye-tracking)
— applications of visual sensemanking for social science, humanities, and human behaviour studies

The workshop emphasises application areas where explainability and semantic interpretation of dynamic visuo-spatial imagery are central, e.g., for commonsense scene understanding; vision for robotics and HRI; narrative interpretation from the viewpoints of visuo-auditory perception & digital media, sensemaking from (possibly multimodal) human-behaviour data where the principal component is visual imagery.

We welcome contributions, position statements, perspectives addressing the workshop themes from formal, cognitive, computational, engineering, empirical, psychological, and philosophical perspectives. Please consult the workshop website for a list of indicative topics:  http://codesign-lab.org/faim18-cogvis/

Submitted papers must be formatted according to IJCAI guidelines (details here: IJCAI-ECAI 18 guidelines); in summary, all contributions should be no longer than 7 single-spaced pages (6 pages max for content, 1 page max for references). Contributions may be submitted as: (1). technical papers; (2) position statements; or (3) work in progress. Submissions should only be made electronically as PDF documents via the paper submission site: https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=cogvis2018
