Call For Papers

The International Workshop on Spoken Language Translation (IWSLT)
is a yearly scientific workshop, associated with an open evaluation
campaign on spoken language translation, where both scientific papers
and system descriptions are presented. The 9th IWSLT will take place
in Hong Kong on December 6-7, 2012. All information as it becomes
available can be found at the workshop’s webpage.

=== Scientific Papers

The IWSLT invites submissions of scientific papers to be published
in the workshop proceedings and presented in dedicated technical
sessions of the workshop, either in oral or poster form.
The workshop welcomes high quality contributions covering theoretical
and practical issues in the fields of automatic speech recognition
and machine translation, that are applied to spoken language translation.

Possible topics include, but are not limited to:
* Speech and text MT
* Integration of ASR and MT
* MT and SLT approaches
* MT and SLT evaluation
* Language resources for MT and SLT
* Open source software for MT and SLT
* Adaptation in MT
* Simultaneous speech translation
* Speech translation of lectures
* Efficiency in MT
* Stream-based algorithms for MT
* Multilingual ASR and TTS
* Rich transcription of speech for MT
* Translation of on-verbal events

--- Important dates: !UPDATED!

* Sep 30, 2012 : Paper submission due
* Oct 26, 2012 : Notification of acceptance
* Nov 9, 2012 : Camera-ready paper due

=== Evaluation Campaign

The IWSLT offers challenging research tasks and open benchmarks to
develop and test speech recognition and machine translation technology.
In this edition, the IWSLT will offer ASR, SLT and MT tracks around
the large-vocabulary TED talks domain, as well as one MT track
on the small-vocabulary Olympics (OLY) domain. For all tracks, the organizers
will supply participants with training and development data.
Release of the official training data is expected to be in June 2012,
while the evaluation deadlines are in September 2012.
Participants interested in the TED talk tasks can meanwhile access
to the benchmarks used in the IWSLT 2011 (
