The event included tutorial sessions (Vision for language people, and language for vision people) and key-note speakers from organisers of popular challenges (e.g. TRECVID and ImageNet).

We had even better presence this year. Last year, we had a good presence in the last year’s workshop (http://amrahmed.blogs.lincoln.ac.uk/2011/09/19/vl-network-workshop-brighton/), had good discussions and useful feedback on the presented work.

Thanks and well done for all involved.
