Call For Papers

We need your help to preserve indigenous languages!

Due to the overwhelming success in previous workshops like LoResMT and AmericasNLP we have decided to continue to push the needle for Quechua to Spanish translations. Please participate in the first edition of the QUE-SPA speech translation shared task being held at IWSLT 2023. This low-resource task will help increase language preservation for low-resource languages. We invite advanced research and approaches of all types so bring your rule-based, statistical, neural, and more!
