Dear Teresita:

(1) Many thanks for your msg (ATTACHMENT I).

(2) 29-31 March is fine for the mini-workshop in Manila.

Dear Kim:

(3) Although time is very short for your submission of the travel fund
application to the US/NSF, let's aim for these dates with the
following schedules;

(a) Your submission of the application to the NSF by the end of January,

(b) The NSF's decision heard by the end of February,

(c) If the decision is favorable, we will proceed to have the mini-workshop in Manila on 29-31 March.

Dear Teresita:

You may consider two alternative dates, say, in June or July, in case
the NSF's decision will be delayed.

Dear Teresita and everybody:

(4) As mentioned in my listserve distribution of 12/21/99, this mini-workshop is;

(a) to introduce our GUS project to your people,

(b) to discuss about the pilot project proposal -- see
which was prepared by Kim Obbink,

(c) to learn from your people about,

1. current status of distance learning and telemedicine
(including the delivery infrastructure),

2. their need in the future, particularly when a broadband
Internet will be available,

(d) to present what can be (or will be) available from North America,

1. via narrow-band Internet and ISDN, etc., i.e., through
currently available telecom infrastructure,

2. via broad-band Internet when it is available,

(e) to discuss and plan the theme and program of the larger
workshop/conference (as to the follow-up to our Tampere event --
for 3 to 5 days) to be held in Tokyo where ASEAN country
people will jointly work:

1. to formalize the draft of the pilot project proposal at

2. to make the feasibility study, action plan, etc. to realize
the project of establishing domestic and international
distance learning and telemedicine,

a. firstly, via the currently available narrow-band Internet,

b. in the near future, via the proposed broad-band Internet,

3. to configure administrative and business schemes,

4. to construct joint funding proposals,

(f) to plan joint fund-raising for the larger workshop/conference in Tokyo.

If this much can be done at your mini-workshop, it would be splendid.

Dear Teresita:

(5) Referring to Item (4)-(d) above, we plan to bring appropriate people
from North America (US and Canada) in order to meet with your need which
your people will present in Item (4)-(c)-2. This means that we have to
select those North American people before-hand, according to the
information on your needs.

Kim Obbink is willing to submit her travel grant application for those
selected people to the US/NSF, which has already indicated their
intention to receive Kim's application. (If there is Canadian interest
in this project, Kim may do the similar to Canadian governmental agencies.)

Since those grant application takes time, we would greatly appreciate it
if you can kindly inform me your preliminary need to aid my selection of those North American
people (e.g., ATTACHMENT III) to attend your mini-workshop, at your earliest convenience.

(6) Pls inform me about the current capabilities of your infrastructure,
particularly the speeds of your Internet access and ISDN line.

Dear Roger:

(7) Pls figure out if you can demonstrate low cost audio/video conferencing
via narrowband (I presume 128 Kbps from their previous msgs) Internet
for 2 to 3 hours in the afternoon of March 29th (a mini-version of what
you did in Tampere).

(8) Pls try to hook up with our colleagues at;

(a) Kimberly K. Obbink
Montana State University/Bozeman,

(b) Sherrilynne Fuller
University of Washington/Seattle,

(c) Renee Ebert
University of California/Los Angels,

(d) Ninfa Saturnino Springer
University of Michigan/Ann Arbor,

(e) G. Robert (Bob) Converse
Maui Community College, etc.

Pls test with them prior to this event in Manila.

(9) Pls try to demonstrate Atrium of VocalTech this time -- you scheduled to
do so during our Tampere event, but in vain.

Dear Bill Klemm:

(10) If you consider that 128 Kbps is sufficient for the use of your FORUM
computer conferencing system, pls demonstrate it from Manila.

Dear Shin and Clarito:

(11) Many thanks for your msg (ATTACHMENT II).

Let's schedule your echocardiograph demo in the evening of March 29th
(Manila time) which is the morning of March 29th in NYC.

Dear Clarito:

(12) Pls inform me your correct email address ASAP. Thanks.

(13) Pl check with Art and Herman if they have Hewlett-Packard made
echocardiograph machine -- if so, we may be able to get a
videoconferencing bridge from HP free of charge.

(14) Pls also arrange for 3D image software with Ricardo.

Dear Ralph:

(15) Referring to your msg of 12/19th, pls have your colleagues at St. Luke's
College of Medicine contact Art and Herman for this telemedicine

Dear Colleagues listed in ATTACHMENT III:

(16) I would like to respectfully request you to attend this mini-workshop.

(17) Should you accept this proposition, pls send me the following ASAP
(preferably by January 20th);

(a) Your full official address (title, division, affiliation, mailing
address, phone/fax, email, and URL, etc.),

(b) A half to one full page of brief descriptive bio,

(c) A half to one full page description of your possible contribution
to our colleagues in Philippines through this project. This is
very important to convince peer group members of the NSF travel
grant program.

Dear Kim:

(18) Pls send me the drafts of your cover letter and text of your application
by January 20th which can be the revised version of your previous one
submitted to the NSF for our Tampere event -- I will work on it and
return to you ASAP.

(a) You may firstly condense "Summary" and "Conduct of Event" in
Section II of PART I in my final report of our Tampere event

(b) You may then excerpt from the draft proposal of your pilot project
in its PART II,

(c) You may then stress that this is the first of realizing our Global
University System project -- with global collaboration and
partnership to ensure students' learnability.

Dear Lane, Ken and Gilles:

(19) I would greatly appreciate it if you can attend this workshop.

I would appreciate it very much if everybody of this mini-workshop take their
action promptly, since there is not much time left.

Looking forward to hearing from you soon,

Best, Tak

Dear Mr.Utsumi.

It is very glad to know that your mini-workshop will be held on March 20.
Since I have two other conferences while March and April, Dr. Clarito
Dimayuga will be responsible for this project.
To get official allowance from the University and to prepare the meeting,
please let us know about buget and shedule in detail ASAP.

Because there is 12 h time difference between Manila and NY, we need to
prepare telemedicine in defferent way. Clarito may need to set up lots in
Manila alone.
