July 11, 18:00-21:00
The Welcome Reception is free for all ACL 2010 registered participants. Please join us in the foyer of the Uppsala University Main Building (Venue A) to meet old and new friends!
A buffet style lunch is included in the main conference registration and will be served in the foyer of the Uppsala University Main Building (Venue A) on all three days of the main conference. On Monday and Tuesday, lunch is combined with the main conference poster sessions from 13:15 to 15:00. On Wednesday, lunch is served from 13:00 to 14:30, partly overlapping with the ACL Business Meeting (12:20-13:20).
Because lunch is included in the registration fee for all main conference participants, there will be no traditional Student Lunch at ACL 2010. But during the main conference, Room II in the Main Building (Venue A) will be reserved as a Student Club, where students attending ACL can meet their peers for birds-of-a-feather meetings, impromptu demos, or just a social chat.
July 13, 19:00-01:00
Due to planning requirements of the Castle, we must confirm final banquet numbers well ahead of the banquet date. Therefore, only a very limited number of tickets will be available onsite for purchase. If you now know your plans and wish to add the banquet, it is strongly recommended that you go back to the online registration form and add the banquet now.
The ACL 2010 Banquet will be held at Uppsala Castle (Uppsala slott), in the Hall of State ("Rikssalen"). The construction of the castle was started in 1549 by king Gustav I, but it has been remodeled and expanded on several occasions, in particular after a great fire in 1702. Throughout much of its early history, Uppsala Castle played a major role in the history of Sweden, being the seat of the Swedish parliament and the scene of many important political events.
Today the castle is the residence of the County Governor of Uppsala County, and the Hall of State is the supreme banquet hall in Uppsala.
The ACL 2010 Banquet will feature a three-course dinner, followed by dancing to live music according to the established ACL tradition.
