I attended NAACL-HLT 2013 (The 2013 Conference of the North American Chapter of the Association for Computational Linguistics: Human Language Technologies) which took place last month in Atlanta, GA. I presented a poster at the workshop on Events: Definition, Detection, Coreference, and Representation in the conference. This was the first time that I had ever participated in an international conference. Listening to interesting talks and speaking with researchers in such conference were a fresh experience for me to cultivate research skills. I am grateful that the conference committee organized this wonderful event and put things together.
Here are a couple of pictures of the conference:
