This post was written a while back, but never published..
I went because I wanted to talk to my young collaborators, Katerina Kalouli and Livy Real, who were presenting work, related to our joint work.
Livy presented work on creating a version of the SICK corpus in Portuguese as a poster in the workshop Widening NLP. The program in http://www.winlp.org/winlp-2018-workshop/accepted-papers/ says
I have met and talked to several people that I hadn't seen in years, which was nice, and New Orleans was amazing! I also met Ben van Durme, from John Hopkins University NLP group, for the first time. Finally my friend Marilyn Walker was the overall chair person of the conference, which was also very nice.
My first NAACL-HLT
So I was impressed by the amount of interesting work I saw at NAACL this year. This was my first NAACL-HLT, but I have done quite a bit of reviewing this year (for ACL and Coling), so it was clear that there was a lot to hear in New Orleans.
