Antwerp Wallace Conference Begins Thursday

Updates below. 
It's finally here!
The University of Antwerp Conference, Work in Process: Reading David Foster Wallace's The Pale King commences this Thursday.
You can check out the full conference programme, and read abstracts for all of the papers. Some of them sound super-interesting.
The keynote speakers are Marshall Boswell (Understanding David Foster Wallace) and Stephen Burn (David Foster Wallace's Infinite Jest: A Reader's Guide). With papers by (to name only a few) Adam Kelly, David Hering and Ryan Blanck.
As I've mentioned previously, I wish I could make it... The next best thing would be to have volunteers live blogging and writing summary articles for all the readers here at The Howling Fantods. Keen? Drop me a line if you are going to be there.
From what I've heard so far Day 1 has been a great success. Can't wait to hear more.
Day 2 as well! I've also heard that the conference was recorded...
