Hop on the free shuttle and you will be whisked around the area which also includes some top downtown Denver attractions, like the Denver Performing Arts Complex, Colorado Convention Center and the City’s major professional sports stadiums.

Social Events

Catch up with your colleagues at the Welcome Reception! It will be held immediately following the Tutorials, Sunday, May 31st, at 6:00pm, in the Plaza Exhibit (foyer) of the Sheraton Denver Downtown Hotel (the conference venue). Refreshments and a light dinner will be provided as well as a cash bar being available.

Join your fellow students for a free Students-only Lunch on Monday, June 1st, at 12:30, in the Plaza Ballroom C at the hotel. Entrance tickets will be in your conference badges. Get to know others who share similar interests and goals and may become your lifelong colleagues.

The NAACL 2015 Social and Networking Event will be held immediately following the Tuesday Poster Session and dinner in the Grand Ballroom at the hotel. Here you will enjoy desserts, coffee and tea, and a cash bar. Bring your boots and hats and follow along with our dance instructors to learn the latest country line dancing, then practice your moves to the sounds of a local DJ (who will play other sounds if you tire of the country twang). Enjoy networking with colleagues and have a relaxing evening! (We are trying a second-time experiment in holding a 2nd poster dinner and open-to-all desserts/drinks/dancing social event combination in place of the usual Banquet). We hope to make your conference experience not only enlightening but also entertaining and enjoyable!
