SLTAT 2023: 8th Workshop on Sign Language Translation and Avatar Technologies

Eighth International Workshop on
Sign Language Translation and Avatar Technology

Recent research in the use of avatars to animate sign language promises to provide increased accessibility for deaf people. In addition, avatars support sign linguistics research, providing a potential target for translation from spoken and other sign languages, and scan light on human factors of sign language usage.

Call for papers

Submissions are invited for a full-day workshop that aims to bring together researchers who work with sign language translation with those who develop sign language avatar technologies. We invite papers on the following topics:

Oral/signed presentations and posters (with or without demonstrations) have equal status, and authors are encouraged to suggest the presentation format best suited to communicate their ideas.

Papers should contain a complete description of ideas and applicable research results in a maximum of 4 pages for technical content including figures and possible references, and with one additional optional 5th page containing only references. Because our workshop papers will appear at IEEE Xplore, paper submissions and the reviewing process will be conducted through the ICASSP-2023 paper management system (Microsoft CMT) at

When submitting, please indicate whether you prefer an oral/signed, presentation or a poster.
ATTENTION Please note that you are expected to submit the full paper, not an extended abstract as in previous years.
