Announcement: ICCF20 — October 2016 in Sendai, Japan

A website has been posted for next year’s ICCF20 meeting (International Conference on Cold Fusion) which will be held October 2-7 in Sendai, Japan. Here’s the link:

The host for this conference will be the Condensed Matter Nuclear Reaction (CMNR) Division, the Research Center for Electron Photon Science (ELPH) of Tohoku University

From the conference announcement:

There have been great progresses in the CMNS research during the past few years. The new developments related to the heat generation strongly attract our attention, for example, in the Ni/Pd hydrogen-based higher temperature region. A movement which aims to direct practical use of thermal output has been activated, as well as fundamental researches to understand the basic mechanism. Further in Japan, in order to solve the energy problems and nuclear waste disposal, the CMNS research proposals were accepted recently by the government grant agencies, and the feasibility studies have already started.

For those interested in presenting at the conference, the deadline for submitting abstracts is June 30, 2016. The website also announces that there will be a satellite meeting prior to the Sendai meeting held at Xiamen University in Xiamen, China on September 29-30, 2016.

    Sounds prommissing! I thought, there was one planned in Russia as well next year?

    • Bob Greenyer

      That will be the Russian conference largely on the same subjects.

    Wonderful, I personally applaud every report from anywhere that will bypass patents, profits or anything that stands in the way of Cold Fusion being freed to help humanity.
    My respect and admiration for Mr. Rossi is unbounded and if his one year test is successful in confirming a practical technology then our battle against the corrupt science establishment will begin, to assure a Nobel Prize etc. together with P&F et al.
    The Nobel rules must be changed as it is only the provenly corrupt science that stopped them being honored before a death intervened.
    But I have no time for the delay imposed by not sharing the secret.

    Exciting year ahead of us folks, could be a devastating one for the skeptics.

      Watching Mary Yugo or Michael Shermer (Scientific American Magazine) eating crow will make my day.

      • Nicholas Chandler-Yates

        honestly watching the guys over at the wikipedia article eat crow will be very satisfying when the disputes tribunal inevitably rules against the pathoskeptics. theres going to have to be something massive for that to happen however. Its coming though…

    Anyone have an idea as to the size of the CMNS (LENR) research grants in Japan?
