Colocated with ACL 2022

The International Conference on Spoken Language Translation (IWSLT) is an annual scientific conference, associated with an open evaluation campaign on spoken language translation, where both scientific papers and system descriptions are presented.

IWSLT 2022 will be collocated with ACL 2022, which be a hybrid event on 22-27 May 2022. The format of IWSLT and exact dates will be announced closer to the event.

Shared Tasks

Details of the IWSLT 2022 Evaluation Campaign will be announced later this fall.

All tasks will follow the same important dates.


Registration for the 2022 Evaluation Campaign will open later this fall.

Please join the IWSLT Evaluation Campaign google group for periodic updates and community questions.

Paper Submission

Submissions should be scientific papers or shared task system description papers. All papers may consist of 4 to 8 pages of content with additional pages of references, formatted using the ACL stylesheets. Upon acceptance, all papers will be given one (1) additional content page to address reviewers’ comments. Accepted papers will be published in the ACL 2022 proceedings and will be presented at the IWSLT conference either orally or as a poster.

The submission procedure will be linked here later this fall.


  • Scientific papers must be anonymized for submission, while system description papers do not need to be.
  • We accept submissions which have previously been made available as technical reports or preprints, e.g. on arXiv.
  • We will not accept scientific papers for publication that overlap significantly in content or results with papers published elsewhere.
  • Scientific papers which have been, or plan to be, submitted to other venues must be declared as such at the time of submission, and must be withdrawn from the other venues if accepted and published at IWSLT 2022.
