The ACL 2020 Second Grand-Challenge and Workshop on Multimodal Language
(ACL 2020) offers a unique opportunity for interdisciplinary researchers to
study and model interactions between modalities of language, vision, and
acoustic. Modeling multimodal language is a growing research area in NLP.
This research area pushes the boundaries of multimodal learning and
requires advanced neural modeling of all three constituent modalities.
Advances in this research area allow the field of NLP to take the leap
towards better generalization to real-world communication (as opposed to
limitation to textual applications), and better downstream performance in
Conversational AI, Virtual Reality, Robotics, HCI, Healthcare, and

There are two tracks for submission: Grand-challenge and Workshop (workshop
allows archival and non-archival submissions). Grand-Challenge is focused
on multimodal sentiment and emotion recognition on CMU-MOSEI (grand-prize
of >$1k in value for the winner) and MELD dataset. The workshop accepts
publications in the below listed research areas. Archival track will be
published in ACL workshop proceedings and non-archival track will be only
presented during the workshop (but not published in proceedings). We invite
researchers from NLP, Computer Vision, Speech Processing, Robotics, HCI,
and Affective Computing to submit their papers.
