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 16th IWSLT will take place in Hong Kong, on November 2nd and 3rd, 2019.

Evaluation Campaign

IWSLT will feature three evaluation tasks focusing on end-to-end speech translation, multimodel models and spontaneous speech:


Speech translation of audiovisual content: HowTo and TED and real

lectures from English to Portuguese and German


Clean speech translation of spontaneous, disfluent telephone

conversations from Spanish to English


Text translation on a less resourced language pair: English to Czech

Training and development data for each task will be released to the participants through the workshop website at the beginning of June 2019. The evaluation period will be from July 1st to September 8th 2019.

Scientific papers
