Ah geez, those are some good speakers! I wish I could go. I was at the 2008 meaning conference and got to hear Roy Baumeister speak.

For any readers who might have the opportunity, I highly recommend this conference. I got both high-quality psychology presentations and some good interdisciplinary experience (attendees included therapists, researchers, clergy, philosophers, classicists... it was great). And the Wongs (who organize the conference) are wonderful people.
