Submission is now open for a new research topic titled “Identifying, Analyzing, and Overcoming Challenges in Vision and Language Research”. Submission to this research topic can be made through several participating Journals including Frontiers in Big Data, Frontiers in Artificial Intelligence, or Frontiers in Robotics and AI.

We invite manuscripts on topics as such:

  *   Novel algorithms and techniques that help improve the state-of-the-art in existing V&L tasks

  *   Novel V&L algorithms that are less prone to dataset bias and spurious correlations, enforce demographic fairness, and/or are more interpretable and explainable

  *   Novel datasets, sub-tasks, and challenges that help test for new capabilities and/or highlight shortcomings with existing datasets and algorithms in V&L

  *   Controlled test sets aimed to evaluate specific abilities involved in the language grounded visual understanding

  *   Probing tasks aiming to evaluate the quality of the multimodal V&L representations

  *   Novel evaluation metrics that help accurate and fair evaluation of V&L algorithms with respect to dataset bias, label imbalance, lack of compositionality, and other related issues with V&L tasks

  *   Previously unknown analysis, key-observations, discussion, and insights about bias and related issues in existing V&L datasets and algorithms

  *   Negative or critical results regarding practices currently used in mainstream V&L research

  *   Successes or challenges of integrating vision and language in a novel application domain

We also welcome well-formulated survey articles, opinion pieces, position papers, or commentaries regarding the current state and future prospects of V&L research if it fits within the theme of the Research Topic.

Frontiers’ Research Topics are collections of peer-reviewed articles around an emerging or cutting-edge theme. As a contributing author, you will benefit from:

• high visibility and the chance to be included in a downloadable eBook

• rigorous, transparent, and fast peer-review for your article

• publication throughout the year, as soon as your article is accepted

• advanced impact metrics

Submission Deadlines:

Abstract (half page) submission:  3rd of May 2021

Submission of full manuscripts:   5th of July 2021
