VQA Challenge Workshop
at CVPR 2016, June 26, Las Vegas, USA
The VQA Challenge Winners and Honorable Mentions were announced at the VQA Challenge Workshop where they were awarded TitanX GPUs sponsored by NVIDIA!
The primary purpose of this workshop is to hold a challenge on Visual Question Answering on the VQA dataset. VQA is a new dataset containing open-ended and multiple-choice questions about images. These questions require an understanding of vision, language, and commonsense knowledge to answer. This workshop will provide an opportunity to benchmark algorithms on the VQA dataset and to identify state-of-the-art algorithms.
A secondary goal of this workshop is to bring together researchers interested in Visual Question Answering to share state-of-the-art approaches, best practices, and perspectives on future directions in multi-modal AI. We invite submissions of extended abstracts of at most 2 pages describing work in areas such as: Visual Question Answering, (Textual) Question Answering, Commonsense Knowledge, Video Question Answering, Image/Video Captioning and other problems at the intersection of vision and language. Accepted abstracts will be presented as posters at the workshop. The workshop will be held on June 26th, 2016 at the IEEE Conference on Computer Vision and Pattern Recognition, 2016.
Program (Venue: Palace III)
Poster Presentation Instructions
1. Poster stands will be 8 feet wide by 4 feet high. Please review the CVPR16 poster template for more details on how to prepare your poster. You do not need to use this template, but please read the instructions carefully and prepare your posters accordingly.
2. Poster presenters are asked to install their posters between 12:25 PM and 2:00 PM. Push pins will be provided for attaching posters to the boards.
We invite submissions of extended abstracts of at most 2 pages describing work in areas such as: Visual Question Answering, (Textual) Question Answering, Commonsense Knowledge, Video Question Answering, Image/Video Captioning and other problems at the intersection of vision and language. Accepted submissions will be presented as posters at the workshop. The extended abstract should follow the CVPR formatting guidelines and be emailed as single PDF to the email id mentioned below. Please use the following LaTeX/Word templates.
We encourage submissions of relevant work that has been previously published, or is to be presented at the main conference. The accepted abstracts will be posted on the workshop website and will not appear in the official IEEE proceedings.
In case you need a decision before the CVPR early registration deadline (May 15), please let us know.
