We received 425 short paper submissions (excluding withdrawn submissions). In total we received 392 more papers than NAACL-HLT2016.

We make sure each area chair gets a light meta-review load, usually < 15 long+short papers which match the chair’s expertise. Each reviewer gets <=3 papers across all long and short tracks so everyone will have time to provide quality reviews.
