There is a large amount of work here, with many interesting articles discussing anomalous heat produced, and/or transmutation effects observed in cold fusion experiments. It does make a strong case that there really is something worth studying here. As always, Andrea Rossi, possibly the most advanced practitioner in the LENR field, is conspicuous by his absence at these kinds of meetings. However we see that Norman Cook, who has peviously collaborated with Rossi in theoretical analysis has an interesting article here in which he argues that there needs to be a re-examination of the models of the nucleus before we can make progress understanding what is happening in LENR.
