The 13th International Workshop on Spoken Language Translation

December 8-9, 2016 - Seattle, USA. http://www.iwslt.org

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 13th International Workshop on Spoken Language Translation will take place in Seattle, WA, USA, on December 8-9, 2016.

Evaluation Campaign

IWSLT will feature evaluation tracks on speech-to-text transcription (ASR), speech-to-text translation (SLT) and text-to-text translation (MT) in two application scenarios: subtitling of video lectures and simultaneous translation of videoconferences. Languages covered this year are English, German, French, and Czech. Training and development data will be released to the participants through the workshop website begin of May 2016.

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, original 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:



MT and SLT approaches


Multilingual ASR and TTS

Integration of ASR and MT


Rich transcription of speech for MT

MT and SLT evaluation


Neural network methods in ASR, MT and SLT

Language resources for MT and SLT


Adaptation for ASR, MT and SLT

Open source software for ASR, MT and SLT


Post- and Pre-processing for ASR, MT and SLT

Applications of MT and SLT


Efficiency in ASR, MT and SLT
