26-27 May 2022 - 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, and will be run as hybrid event on 26-27 May 2022.

All tasks will follow the same important dates.

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 once available.


  • 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have been, or plan to be, submitted to other venues must be declared as such at the time of submission, and must be withdrawn from the other venues if accepted and published at IWSLT 2022.
