Hello R
It was good to see you today and I just wondered what would you think  
regarding my offer:
I have missed the application dead line for presenting a paper  in  
this great conference, however, I am suggesting that if someone is  
not arriving, perhaps I can take the space and fill in the gap, - it  
will be great to gain the experience
Thanks for your consideration
Hope to see you in the panels
