DSTC11 workshop (Summer and Winter tracks): September 11 or 12, at SIGDIAL x INLG 2023 (conference dates September 11-15) in Prague, Czech Republic

Topics and Format

The main goal of this workshop is to share the results of the five main tracks of DSTC11. We encourage all the teams who participated in the challenge to submit their work to this workshop. In addition, papers on dialog systems and related technologies, including but not limited to natural language processing, audio and speech processing, and vision information processing are welcome in the general technical track.

We will have a workshop to share knowledge and research on the tracks of DSTC11 and general technical track. This will include invited talks, poster sessions and a panel to discuss the achievements of DSTC challenges, and future directions.

Submission requirements

The submissions must follow the formatting guidelines for ACL-23. All submissions must be anonymous and conform to ACL standards for double-blind review. The papers may consist of up to 8 pages of technical content plus unlimited additional pages for references and appendices following the ACL format.

Note: While there is no extra page for the camera-ready paper this year, authors may want to move supplementary results to the appendix in order to accommodate changes suggested by the reviewers (there is no page limit for the appendix). We will consider offering an extra page for the camera-ready papers at next DSTCs.

Submission site

You will submit the paper to the CMT system here.


Accepted papers will be presented at the DSTC11 workshop, which will take place on September 11 or 12 at SIGDIAL x INLG 2023 (conference dates September 11-15) in Prague, Czech Republic. The workshop is expected to be hybrid, allowing presentations to be either on-site or virtual. Note that the workshop will include presentations from both summer and winter tracks from DSTC11. We will provide more details on the venue and attendance soon.
