The Last-Minute Majority
Many authors were working hard until the last minute! Later we will compare the acceptance rates of early bird papers and last minute papers, now please enjoy some curves (ps the data point after the deadline must be a small bug in softconf time recording):

I added those numbers together, and it’s only 652 papers.
I’m wondering where did those 5 papers go?
We adjusted area assignment and updated the numbers. Thanks for pointing it out.
I think … short papers accidentally submitted as long
It would be better if the legend (of the first picture) could be moved to the upper left corner 🙂
It’s automatically generated by softconf…let me explore a bit more to see if I can move it around:-) thank you for the suggestion.
Looking more into the details today:
* Although this is a record number of submissions for NAACL, the total number of long paper submissions is well under our “worst / best case” estimate based on EMNLP and ACL 2017
* There is one collection of areas that has more submissions than our estimates: the collection composed of Generation, Summarization, Dialog and Discourse.
* And in particular, here’s lookin’ at you, Generation, on the way up!!
