Welcome to the 54th Annual Meeting of the Association for Computational Linguistics! This year, ACL received 825 long paper submissions (a new record) and 463 short paper submissions.1 Of the long papers, 231 were accepted for presentation at ACL—116 as oral presentations and 115 as poster presentations. 97 short papers were accepted—49 as oral and 48 as poster presentations. In addition, ACL also features 25 presentations of papers accepted in the Transactions of the Association for Computational Linguistics (TACL). With 353 paper presentations at the main conference, this is the largest ACL program to date. In keeping with the tremendous growth of our field, we introduced some changes to the conference. Oral presentations were shortened to fifteen (twelve) minutes for long (short) papers, plus time for questions. While this places a greater demand on speakers to be concise, we believe it is worth the effort, allowing far more work to be presented orally. We also took advantage of the many halls available at Humboldt University and expanded the number of parallel talks during some conference sessions. We introduced a category of outstanding papers to help recognize the highest quality work in the community this year. The 11 outstanding papers (9 long, 2 short, 0.85% of submissions) represent a broad spectrum of exciting contributions; they are recognized by especially prominent placement in the program. From these, a best paper and an IBM-sponsored best student paper have been selected; those will be announced in the awards session on Wednesday afternoon. Join the conversation about this journal

The SJR is a size-independent prestige indicator that ranks journals by their 'average prestige per article'. It is based on the idea that 'all citations are not created equal'. SJR is a measure of scientific influence of journals that accounts for both the number of citations received by a journal and the importance or prestige of the journals where such citations come from It measures the scientific influence of the average article in a journal, it expresses how central to the global scientific discussion an average article of the journal is.

Citations per document

This indicator counts the number of citations received by documents from a journal and divides them by the total number of documents published in that journal. The chart shows the evolution of the average number of times documents published in a journal in the past two, three and four years have been cited in the current year. The two years line is equivalent to journal impact factor ™ (Thomson Reuters) metric.

Evolution of the number of total citation per document and external citation per document (i.e. journal self-citations removed) received by a journal's published documents during the three previous years. External citations are calculated by subtracting the number of self-citations from the total number of citations received by the journal’s documents.

Not every article in a journal is considered primary research and therefore "citable", this chart shows the ratio of a journal's articles including substantial research (research articles, conference papers and reviews) in three year windows vs. those documents other than research articles, reviews and conference papers.
