Recently we were got accepted to the most important conference in our field – The 49th Annual Meeting of the Association for Computational Linguistics: Human Language Technologies. It was set in Portland, Oregon, which meant we got to go to the United states for the first time. 🙂
It took some time to get there, a total of 23.5 hours travelling, around 13 of them on planes. But it was worth it, the conference and the trip were both excellent.
