Invitations- Declining invitation to Speak - 3
I have just received your invitation to be keynote speaker at the upcoming Goa Oceanographers Conference. You know how much I love to speak about abyssal exploration, its possibilities and ramifications. I’m sure, then, you will understand how disappointed I am to have to decline your invitation.
I am scheduled to begin a six-week long research project on behalf of Sanket Kapadia and the military, and we depart on the same day you wanted me to speak.
All the best for your conference. I recall being told you planned to videotape the sessions this year. If so, I would like to order one. If I can’t participate in the conference, I can at least watch it!
