Dear all,

The submission deadline for the research topic titled in “Identifying, Analyzing, and Overcoming Challenges in Vision and Language Research” is approaching:

**5th of July 2021**

Find more information here: https://www.frontiersin.org/research-topics/18532<https://eur04.safelinks.protection.outlook.com/?url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.frontiersin.org%2Fresearch-topics%2F18532&data=04%7C01%7Cs.pezzelle%40uva.nl%7Ca774663ac88343755c4408d9201121db%7Ca0f1cacd618c4403b94576fb3d6874e5%7C1%7C1%7C637576080240684645%7CUnknown%7CTWFpbGZsb3d8eyJWIjoiMC4wLjAwMDAiLCJQIjoiV2luMzIiLCJBTiI6Ik1haWwiLCJXVCI6Mn0%3D%7C3000&sdata=bQDLjgM6IdWyG6oWWfJ4kVs8erMgLz3bogRMj3bAWRo%3D&reserved=0>

Submission to this research topic can be made through a number of 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 as long as 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
