The International Conference on Spoken Language Translation

ACL – 20th IWSLT 2023

July 13-14, 2023 – Toronto, Canada

The International Conference on Spoken Language Translation (IWSLT) is the premier annual conference for all aspects of Spoken Language Translation. Every year, the conference organizes and sponsors open evaluation campaigns around key challenges in simultaneous and consecutive translation, under real-time/low latency or offline conditions and under low-resource or multilingual constraints. System descriptions and results from participants’ systems and scientific papers related to key algorithmic advances and best practice are presented.

IWSLT is the venue of the SIGSLTs, the Special Interest Group on Spoken Language Translation of ACL, ISCA and ELRA. With a track record of 19 years, IWSLT benchmarks and proceedings serve as reference for all researchers and practitioners working on speech translation and related fields.

In 2023, IWSLT will be co-located with ACL 2023 and will be run as a hybrid meeting.

Speech dubbing of multi-source data

Dialectal and Low-resource speech translation

Formality control for SLT

Training and development data for each shared task will be prepared and released by the respective organizers (for further information on this initiative, please refer to the website). Participants will receive instructions about how to submit their runs. In addition, participants have the opportunity to present their work through a system paper that will be published in the ACL Proceedings.


IWSLT also invites submissions of scientific papers to be published in the ACL Proceedings and presented either in oral or poster format. The conference selects high-quality, original contributions on theoretical and practical issues of spoken language translation research, technologies and applications.

Please send an email to if you have any questions related to the shared tasks.
