Hi rl-list people!

I’m glad to announce the call for papers for the Language and Reinforcement Learning workshop at NeurIPS this year!

Important dates:

  • Submission deadline: 22nd September 2022

  • Acceptance Notification: 14th October 2022

  • Workshop date: 2nd December 2022, in-person @Neurips2022, New Orleans, LA, USA

Website: https://larel-workshop.github.io/


Language is one of the most impressive human accomplishments and is believed to be the core to our ability to learn, teach, reason and interact with others. Yet, the ability of current state-of-the art reinforcement learning agents to understand natural language is limited. The aim of the workshop on Language in Reinforcement Learning is to steer discussion and research of the intersection between language and RL by bringing together researchers from several communities, including reinforcement learning, robotics, natural language processing, computer vision and cognitive psychology.

We welcome submissions on any work at the intersection of language and reinforcement learning. Examples of topics include:

  • language-instructed agents,

  • agents evolving in purely linguistic, text-based environments,

  • agents leveraging multi-modal inputs including linguistic ones,

  • agents leveraging external text corpora,

  • works on novel environments and benchmarks involving multi-modal perceptions including language

Submission instructions:
Submissions must be made through our OpenReview page. They must be anonymized, up to 4 pages long and must use the NeurIPS 2022 LaTeX format. Appendices can be added to the main PDF. Each paper will receive two reviews in a double-blind process.

We welcome original research, short reviews, opinion papers or propositions of novel learning environments. We accept dual submissions. Authors can upload concise versions of parallel submissions to other conferences such as NeurIPS main conference or ICLR. We discourage submitting to multiple NeurIPS workshops.

Although there will be no proceedings, all accepted papers will be made available on the workshop website.
