The ability to describe by means of linguistic expressions the content of images is characteristics of human beings, in contrast with the numerical features employed by computers. In order to improve the communication between humans and computers, it is necessary to provide knowledge representation models and mathematical tools able to capture and express the semantics of linguistic descriptors. This is a fundamental basis for the development of applications based on linguistic description and linguistic interaction with visual information.

Computational intelligence provides most suitable tools in order to fill the gap between the description of visual information by humans and machines. The objective of the special session is to provide a forum for the exposition and discussion of the most recent developments in the topic of linguistic description of visual information by means of computational intelligence techniques.
