Given below is a list of all the papers (long and short) that have been accepted for NAACL-HLT 2013 conference to be held in Atlanta, Georgia, on June 09-15, 2013. The original call for papers can be found here.


Presentation time is 25 minutes for LONG papers and 15 minutes for SHORT papers, including introductions, questions and switching between presentations. Please plan for your actual presentation to last about 20 minutes if you have a long paper and 12 minutes if you have a short paper. It is important that the sessions remain on time. Presentation rooms will each have several connections for laptops (VGA cable, mini D-sub 15 pin). You are expected to bring your own laptop and set it up during the break immediately preceding your session; technical staff will be on hand to assist you. Your session chair will then switch the display to your laptop for your presentation. Please remember to bring your own AC adapter. If your laptop is not compatible with a VGA cable, please also bring the required VGA adapter. You should arrive to your session room 15 minutes before the session starts to meet with your session chair.
NAACL is excited to announce a new initiative to record all of the oral presentations at our conference. We have hired a professional videographer to record the presentations. We will make the videos available online after the conference. Our goal is to improve the dissemination of the scientific materials that are generated for the conference. Video recording is currently a one year experiment. If it goes well and the feedback is positive, then we will consider extending it into the future.

What do you need to do?
Beyond creating a great presentation that you will be proud to have other people watch, you don't need to take any further action. The copyright agreement for the final submission of your paper granted NAACL permissions to record your talk and distribute it under a Creative Commons Attribution License.

Have feedback or want to opt out?
You can contact Chris Callison-Burch . To simplify the logistics, all talks will be recorded. If you want to opt out after the conference, you can email Chris\ to have your talk removed from the archive.


Posterboards are 3 feet (90cm) high, 4 feet (120cm) wide self-standing boards that will be placed on top of conference tables. Materials for attaching posters to the boards (push-pins, double-sided tape, etc.) will be provided. A chair will be provided at each position. Please affix your poster to your assigned posterboard during the break preceding the poster session.
