8:30 AM -- 5:00 PM PDT

ODRUM 2022 Archive: [Webpage] YouTube

AI has undergone a paradigm shift in the past decade -- the connection between vision and language (V+L) is now an integral part of AI, with deep impact beyond vision and NLP -- robotics, graphics, cybersecurity, and HCI are utilizing V+L tools and there are direct industrial implications for software, arts, and media. The link between vision and language is much more complex than simple image--text alignment – the use of language for reasoning beyond the visible (for example, physical reasoning, spatial reasoning, commonsense reasoning, and embodied reasoning) is being pursued. Open-Domain Reasoning in Multi-Modal Settings (ODRUM 2023) provides a platform for discussions on multimodal (vision+language) topics with special emphasis on reasoning capabilities.

The aim of ODRUM 2023 is to address the emerging topic of visual reasoning using multiple modalities (such as text, images, videos, audio, etc.). The workshop will feature invited talks by experts in the realm of reasoning such as: embodied AI, navigation, learning via interaction and collaboration with humans, building large V+L that can perform multiple tasks, visual grounding, and the use of language to instruct robots. Participants and speakers will converge for a panel discussion to discuss the importance of reasoning (a core AI topic that has a rich and long history since the 1950s) to computer vision, relevance to recent progress in visual reasoning, discuss trends and challenges in open-domain reasoning, from different perspectives of NLP, vision, machine learning, and robotics researchers.

Call for Papers

We invite submissions related to the broad topic area of multi-modal understanding, reasoning and comprehension, including but not limited to following topics:

We encourage two types of submissions:

All submitted materials must be anonymized and formatted according to the CVPR 2023 author guidelines and template. Accepted papers will be presented as posters at the workshop, where attendees, invited speakers, and organizers will engage in discussion. We intend to highlight three best papers during the workshop session with spotlight presentations. We will give authors of all accepted papers an option to opt-in or opt-out of CVPR proceedings.
