Closing Remarks

Long oral presentations are allotted 20 minutes followed by 8-9 minutes for Question/Answers, followed by 1-2 minutes for transitions between speakers. This grants oral presentations 5 minutes longer than many ACL conferences. We strongly encourage presenters to use those minutes to make your talk more accessible to audience members whose background is different than your own (computational linguists, documentary linguists, non-academic community members). 

Lightning talks are allotted 13-14 minutes followed by 1-2 minutes for transition between speakers. They may fill this time as they wish. We recommend a 8-10 minute presentation and 3-5 minutes for Q/A.
