3.8 Agenda for technical visit

December 23, 1993
Dear Mr. Smith,

Allow me to introduce myself.
I am a colleague of Miss Lin. She will be a guest worker at the ABC Institute (Paris) from February 19 to June 13 and will be absent during your visit to CMS. Your responsibilities in the upcoming visit Therefore, I will take over the responsibility of arranging your visit itinerary. Your suggestion of what topics should be covered during the visit After discussing the matter with Mr. Chang, I suggest the following topics of discussion for our meeting in May:
1. Coaxial noise standard & radiometer. The content of this topic is provided in your fax dated 1/23/94.
2. Microwave measurement in general. It won't be necessary for you to prepare a lecture. After you have visited our laboratories, however, could you provide us with some suggestions regarding measurement accuracy improvement, error analysis and measurement assistance? On the other hand, you are more than welcome to give a lecture.
3. Low noise figure measurement of devices. This topic is what most interests our customers (from industrial sector to academia). Some manufacturers already produce Low Noise Amplifiers (LNA) and Low Noise Blocks (LNB). Until now, however, no one has devised an accurate method of measuring uncertainty. Therefore, if you agree, we would like to arrange for you to give a talk on this topic, in a seminar, during your visit in May.

If you would like to add anything to the above topics, please feel free to let me know.

Sincerely yours,

3.9 Agenda for technical visit: part one

April 27, 1993
Dear Chen,

ircumstances of upcoming visitI'm glad to hear you are planning to come to Taiwan and visit UCL. Quite some time has passed since we met at the AIChE meeting. As of now, I am available the week of May 17-24. However, please let me know, as soon as possible, the specific date you would like to visit UCL so that I can keep that day open for you. Once the date has been fixed, I will let Dr. Lin know that you are planning to visit us.

Arrangements you have made to satisfy the speaker's particular interestsAs far as the zeolite A process is concerned, I will talk to the person currently responsible for that project and invite him to sit in on our discussion.

I hope you can spend the entire day here so that we'll have sufficient time to reminisce on the good old days. It will be great to see you again. Means of communication to be used for arranging details of the visit Let's use fax transmissions as our communication mode: I believe that this will be the best way. My fax number is included in the above letterhead.

Sincerely yours,

3.10 Agendas for technical visit: part two

April 28, 1993
Dear Chen,

Tentative schedule for technical visit The schedule of your trip to Taiwan has tentatively been arranged as follows:
5/17: Arrive in Taiwan, and stay in Taipei
5/18: Take the train from Taipei to Hsinchu and visit UCL in the evening. I will accompany you to Chiayi by train.
5/19: Visit ABC's R&D Center in Chiayi in the evening. You can take a train to Kaohsiung yourself and stay in a hotel. I will arrange for a friend to pick you up on 5/22
5/20: Visit the ABC Kaohsiung Refinery. Return to Taipei in the evening.
The above schedule is only tentative and I still need to confirm it with some of my friends. As soon as everything is finalized, I'll let you know.

Your friend


3.11 Agendas for technical visits: part three

May 4, 1993
Dear Chen,

Final details for technical visit I'd like to reconfirm your schedule in Taiwan and add some detailed information:
1. You'll arrive in Taiwan on 5/17. I recommend that you come to Hsinchu directly from the airport, which is located between Taipei and Hsinchu. If you prefer, I can arrange for transportation from the airport to bring you to Hsinchu (you can directly pay the driver). If this arrangement is agreeable, please let me know your flight schedule and arrival time. I'll give you more detailed instructions later.
2. On 5/18, I'll pick you up at the hotel and bring you to UCL. You'll stay at UCL until the late afternoon. We'll then take a train from Hsinchu to Chiayi.
3. On 5/19, you'll visit ABC's R&D center and give a presentation and discuss the market potential of Zeolite and Isomerization. In the late afternoon, you can take a train (by yourself) to Kaoshiung and then take a taxi to the hotel.
4. On 5/20, one of my friends will meet you at the hotel and take you to ABC's Kaohsiung Refinery. At the Refinery, you will meet with engineers from the technical department and discuss Xylene isomerization. The Kaohsiung Refinery's technical department is responsible for all the technical business conducted at the Kaohsiung Refinery and at the Linyuan Refinery. All business decisions and transactions, such as catalyst and technology selection, are handled by this department. My friend has recommended that you visit this department instead of the Linyuan Refinery. Besides, if time permits, engineers from the Linyuan Refinery can come to the Kaohsiung Refinery and attend your meeting. I believe this would be a preferable arrangement. Following your discussion at the Kaohsiung Refinery, you will take a plane to Taipei with one of my friends and stay there overnight.
5. Sorry, but I'll be unable to accompany you to Kaohsiung. However, once your trip has been finalized, I'll make all the necessary hotel reservations and train ticket purchases. I'll be out of town between 5/13 and 5/15. To ensure that everything has been covered, please let me know your flight schedule (flight number, arrival time), as well as any suggestions you might have.
6. Please do not forget to send me your company's product portfolio so that I can pass this information on to someone who can help you.

I hope this trip will be successful. See you soon!

Yours sincerely,

Mr. Lin will also help you reserve a plane ticket to Kaohsiung. Please give me a call once you have arrived in Taiwan.

I also suggest that you give Mr. Lin a brief description of ABC and that you send a products portfolio prior to your arrival in Taiwan. That way, he will have a chance to review those materials before discussion with you. Much appreciation for your cooperation in this matter.
