Dear Prof. Taylor,

I am interested in the captioned conference and book chapters.  Amy Ponyton,
a specialist in cyber-learning for IBM Learning Services-Asia Pacific based
in Australia, and I would like to co-author a paper for the book,
preliminary titled "ICT for Regional Education and Training: Building &
Sustaining Leadership and Partnership."  Since Amy is on leave now, could
you allow us to submit the abstract next week?

Thank you very much for your kind consideration and looking forward to
meeting you in Queensland in August!

With best regards,
