Spent the last week in Prague for ACL and EMNLP-CoNLL (paper highlights). I didn't take my camera (last-minute packing issues). Spent most of the time listening to talks, talking to colleagues, and fine-tuning talks, with just one Sunday to look around and several dinners in town. Impressions: large, beautiful historic city center, the best preserved I know in Europe, perfect for walking around; ugly concrete block periphery; excellent public transportation; mediocre to Fawlty-Toweresque service in hotels and restaurants.
