ACL 2017 Program at a Glance

Dear all,

Thank you for your patience as we were assembling the conference program.  With the kind help of the general chair, area chairs and the chairs of the student research workshop and the demonstration chairs, we are happy to publish the preliminary version of the program for ACL 2017.  Authors should hear from the START system by next week confirming their poster or oral presentation mode, which should be supported by the schedule details listed here.

This post gives the overview of the program and will be updated as changes (inevitably) come.  Click on the date to see the linked, detailed schedule for the particular date. This post and its underlying child posts were last updated 28 June 2017.

28 June – Invited Speakers have been listed.
26 June – Physical venues have been assigned to tracks and have been updated here.
14 June – Shortened coffee break on Tuesday to ensure sessions start on time.
11 June – Changed ordering of papers in Session 5A to accommodate a speaker who has two papers originally at the same timing.
