SAY-IT AGAIN 2023 will run parallel to two collocated events: a hands-on seminar on VIP (a voice-text integrated system for interpreters) and the second edition of the Adam Kilgarriff Award Ceremony, which will take place on the 3rd of November 2023.

Like our previous edition, SAY-IT AGAIN 2023 will also be hybrid, which means that both attendees and participants will have the chance to choose whether they want to attend the workshop on site or online. Limited spots!


This workshop seeks to act as a meeting point for researchers working in interpreting-related technologies (CAI tools, machine interpreting, speech to text/speech translation, remote interpreting, etc.); practicing tech-savvy interpreters; companies and freelancers providing services in interpreting as well as companies developing tools for interpreters. In addition to the short papers for presentation, SAY-IT AGAIN will feature invited talks by prominent experts as well as presentations and panels hosted by practitioners.


While language technologies have already made a major impact on the core tasks in the translation profession, the field of interpreting has not yet witnessed a fundamental paradigm shift on account of their use. Against such a background, SAY-IT AGAIN seeks to fill in this gap by allowing the discussion, the scientific comparison, and the mutual enrichment of researchers and professionals working with interpreting-related technologies. In this regard, SAY-IT AGAIN addresses the development of interpreting-related tools, and the experience interpreters have with these tools as well as the development of machine interpreting engines, incorporating (or not) human expertise. The workshop also offers a discussion forum and publishing opportunity for interpreters and for researchers and developers working on interpreting-related technology and machine interpreting.



The international workshop invites submissions reporting original unpublished work in the form of short papers (SP). Short papers should not exceed 7 pages excluding references; they should be minimum 5 pages long. Short papers should follow the template provided in Submissions. The accepted short papers will be published as e-proceedings with ISBN, will be assigned a DOI and will be also available at the time of the workshop. SPs can be submitted via this link


In addition, a call for follow-up papers will be announced after the workshop, where participants in SAY-IT AGAIN 2023 will have the chance to submit full-length papers based on their research. These full-length papers will be published as peer-reviewed chapters (together with a selection of papers from the previous edition) in a SPI-Q1 book.



Registration is available through this link (until full capacity).
