IWSLT Workshop 2009

IWSLT 2009 will take place from December 1--2 at the National Museum of Emerging Science and Innovation in Tokyo, Japan. The workshop website can be found at http://mastarpj.nict.go.jp/IWSLT2009/index.html.

The International Workshop on Spoken Language Translation (IWSLT) is a yearly, open evaluation campaign for spoken language translation followed by a scientific workshop, in which both system descriptions and scientific papers are presented. IWSLT's evaluations are not competition-oriented, but their goal is to foster cooperative work and scientific exchange. In this respect, IWSLT proposes challenging research tasks and an open experimental infrastructure for the scientific community working on spoken and written language translation.
