NIPS 2015 Workshop: Multimodal Machine Learning

Multimodal machine learning aims at building models that can process and relate information from multiple modalities. From the early research on audio-visual speech recognition to the recent explosion of interest in models mapping images to natural language, multimodal machine learning is a vibrant multi-disciplinary field of increasing importance and with extraordinary potential.

Learning from paired multimodal sources offers the possibility of capturing correspondences between modalities and gain in-depth understanding of natural phenomena. Thus, multimodal data provides a means of reducing our dependence on the more standard supervised learning paradigm that is inherently limited by the availability of labeled examples.

This research field brings some unique challenges for machine learning researchers given the heterogeneity of the data and the complementarity often found between modalities. This workshop will facilitate the progress in multimodal machine learning by bringing together researchers from natural language processing, multimedia, computer vision, speech processing and machine learning to discuss the current challenges and identify the research infrastructure needed to enable a stronger multidisciplinary collaboration.


We are looking for contributed papers that apply machine learning to multimodal data. We are interested in both application-oriented papers as well as more fundamental algorithmic / theoretical works.

A non-exhaustive list of relevant topics:

· Automatic image and video description
· Multimodal signal processing
· Audio-visual speech recognition
· Multimodal affect recognition
· Cross-modal multimedia retrieval
· Multi-view multi-task learning
· Multimodal representation learning
· Multi-sensory computational modeling
· Multilingual, multimodal language processing
· Multimodal modeling for robotics control
· Multimodal human behavior modeling


Authors should submit an extended abstract between 4 and 6 pages (including references). We particularly encourage submissions that have been previously published outside the machine learning community (i.e. at NIPS and ICML) to emphasize the multidisciplinary aspect of this research area. We also encourage submission of relevant work in progress.

Submitted abstracts may be a shortened version of a longer paper or technical report, in which case the longer paper should be referred from the submission. Reviewers will be asked to judge the submission solely based on the submitted extended abstract.

All submissions must be in PDF format, and we encourage authors to follow the style guidelines of NIPS 2015 at:

Submissions must be made through:

Submissions will be reviewed for relevance, quality and novelty. They will be presented as posters during the poster session (before the lunch break). A handful of submissions will be given a short talk.
