Good news, everybody! My paper “Sure, I Did The Right Thing: A System For Sarcasm Detection” was accepted to Interspeech 2013! This is my first paper acceptance, so I am pretty excited about it. I’m also characteristically nervous about it, unsurprisingly. Still not sure if I’ll be able to make it out to Lyon in August; it will, as always, depend on funding, but hopefully I’ll be able to make it to either give a presentation on it, or a poster, whichever it gets selected for. Regardless, though; even if I’m unable to make it to Lyon, I’m honored that my paper will be a part of this year’s proceedings. Someone might one day cite me! That, I think, is as close to fame as academia gets.
