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
