Dear Ed:

(1) Many, many thanks for your initial introduction to Dr. Kristof
Kloeckner, CTO, Enterprise Initiatives, and Vice President, Cloud
Computing Platforms & Florence Hudson, Energy and Environment
Executive of IBM Corporation — Reference (e) above.
(2) We will visit him on 4:00 pm to 5:00 pm of September 25th
(Friday).

The attendees would be;

    Dr. Takeshi Utsumi of GLOSAS/USA,
    Prof. Harold Sjursen of Polytechnic Institute of NYU,
    Prof. Carl Skelton of Polytechnic Institute of NYU,
    Dr. Hans Herren of Millennium Institute,
    Dr. Amit Maitra of Lockheed Martin Enterprise Solutions &
Services,
    Dr. Yuzo Kumasaka, an affiliate of Prof. Lawrence Klein of Univ. of
PA,

      Ms. Josie Lianna Kaye, Assistant Director, Center for
      International Conflict Resolution of Columbia University
      (Still to be invited)


(3) We will inquire if IBM people might be interested in participating in
our GCEPG/GUS projects (see References (i) and (j) above).

We plan to construct Globally Distributed Socio-Economic-
Environmental Simulation System — see Figure 8 of Reference (i)
above. This system is to have simulation models of various countries
which will be located in each of them and interconnected together to
act as if a single global scale super computer with massive parallel
processing — see Reference (k) for its development.

We initially planned to use Beowulf mini supercomputer at each
location which are to be interconnected each other via broadband
Internet, but if we could use Cloud Computing, things might be much
easier.

Subsequently, at our mtg, we would;

      (a) describe our projects to IBM people,
      (b) hear the possible application of Cloud Computing to our
      project,
      (c) hear of IBM peoples’ interest participating in our
      project.
Dear Josie:

(4) Although rather technical, I would greatly appreciate it if you can
kindly attend this mtg, as describing your, Simone’s and Peter’s
projects (Reference (f) above). It may be possible to collaboratively
use IBM’s Cloud Computing system for simulation model building and
videoconferencings, etc., by the teams members of Simone’s project
from Lebanon, Univ. of Milan, Millennium Institute (MI) in Washington,
DC, Polytechnic Institute (PI) of NYU in Brooklyn, and of Peter’s
project from Nigeria, MI and PI, etc.

Dear All:

(5) I will talk with you about the logistic of travel more later, but;

      (a) DC people (Hans, Amit) may fly to White Plain County
      Airport, if possible,
      (b) NYC people (Harold, Carl, Josie and me) may take train
      from Grand Central at 1:55 pm to North White Plain,
      (c) Yuzo, you may drive from your home directly — or you
      may come to North White Plain train station at 2:43 pm to
      pick us up.


Looking forward to seeing you soon,

Best, Tak
