2014 Philip K. Dick Festival Call For Papers

This call for papers appeared in the latest Science Fiction Studies:

“2014 PKD Festival. The third Philip K. Dick Festival will be held on 25-26 April 2014 at UC Irvine, California. Though it is not a purely academic conference, scholars who wish to present papers and/or panels are welcome. The organizers are particularly interested in giving young scholars who are researching Dick and his worlds (fiction, films, comics, TV programs, etc. based on his work) an opportunity; they are also looking for contributions that will help place Dick in the wider literary context of science fiction, postmodernist fiction, and US and world literature. Since the Festival will take place in Orange County, the organizers especially welcome presentations dealing with the works Dick wrote while living in the area, from Flow My Tears, The Policemen Said (1974) to The Transmigration of Timothy Archer (1982), as well as the later stories and the Exegesis. Proposals should be sent to Umberto Rossi at before 31 December 2013.—Umberto Rossi, Rome”

    Is it too late for a paper proposal? If not, where should the proposal be sent?
