Natural language is a powerful and intuitive modality for enabling humans to interact with physical systems. Understanding language about physical systems requires the ability to ground the language, or to extract a semantically meaningful representation from the language and map it to the external world. Language grounding has received substantial attention recently, due largely to recent advances in robotics, sensing, natural language processing, and formal representation systems. This workshop provided a venue to discuss shared problems, descriptions of key research problems and challenges, and make progress towards formulating shared definitions.
