    ICCF-21| 3 - 8 June, 2018  |  Fort Collins, CO USA

    The 21st INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE FOR CONDENSED MATTER NUCLEAR SCIENCE

    Registration

    ICCF-21 has been organized as a very cost effective conference. Our goal is for the event to be as affordable as possible for those attending.
    Attendees may choose from turn-key registration options that include the conference meeting, accommodations, dining, conference events and airport transfers.
    ICCF-21 encourages attendees to stay on-campus in the residence halls with their colleagues to facilitate and foster the exchange of ideas.
    To make your on-campus stay as enjoyable as possible, ICCF-21 has secured a block of residence hall rooms with PRIVATE BATHS. Please register early to assure you receive one of these very desirable rooms.
    There are also off-campus registration packages, however we urge all to consider the on-campus option. Almost all on-campus and off-campus packages include meals in the Commons so you can dine and socialize with your fellow participants.
    Below is a table representing many of the registration choices. All options can be found once you visit the registration site. Links to online registration are below the table.
    Please note that ICCF-21 is offering a pre-conference school, in the form of a Short Course. It is an excellent opportunity for those wishing to have an orientation to the field. This is an optional Add-on and takes place during the day on 3 June, Sunday. All ICCF-21 Scholarship Students shall be attending the Short Course. Most Short Course participants should plan to arrive a day early on 2 June, Saturday.
    Early registration ends on 3 May, 2018, Thursday at 11:59pm MST.
  • recent update:

    • Abstract submission deadline is reported end of March.
    • The scholarship program may interest interested students


    There is an updated Abstract Submission Deadline for ICCF-21:

    Register early to assure a room with PRIVATE BATH.


    Please circulate details of the ICCF-21 Scholarship Program.

    We have also instituted a ICCF-21 Scholarship Program to offer no cost ICCF-21 Conference Packages to a select number of qualified undergraduate and graduate students. The awardees' travel to and from Denver is not included. Please pass along this opportunity and the link for the Scholarship Application page to those students or their professors you know, who may be interested.

    Details on conference:

    We encourage attendees to choose to stay on-campus in the residence hall with their colleagues. To make your stay as enjoyable as possible, we have arranged for a block of single and double-occupancy rooms with PRIVATE BATH. Please register early to assure you receive one of these desirable rooms.

    Registration for regular attendees in a single-occupancy residence hall room with private bath, arriving 3 June (Sunday) and departing on 8 June 2018 (Friday), including the conference program, all meals and standard conference events is $849. Should you wish to attend with a friend and share a room, the cost is only $725 each.

    Additionally please note:

    ICCF-21 is being held on 3 - 8 June 2018 at The Lory Student Center on the campus of Colorado State University, Fort Collins, CO, USA.

  • The time for acceptance notification of papers for the ICCF 21 was to be April 16, it has been delayed till April 22 since they had so many submissions......


    Sounds like the field is not as dead as some think.

    I think they delayed because they did not have enough submissions, not because they had many. It takes no time to accept a submission. There should be no delay.

  • You may want to talk to David about that. The acceptances have to go through some scientific committee.

    I know. The only decision is whether to give the author time to speak, or relegate him/her to a poster session. No one is turned down. No one has ever been turned down in the history of the ICCF conferences as far as I know, and I used to handle submissions.


    It takes no time to send out acceptance notices. The hard part is scheduling the lectures. If they extended the deadline, that is because they do not have enough applications.

  • Dear Colleagues,

    about ICCF21 I just uploaded our Abstract (to be presented in the plenary oral session) at ResearchGate. The number of DOI is: 10.13140/RG.2.2.16425.29287.

    For Your convenience I upload the document also in attachment.

    I hope it can be useful for a scientific discussion.


    * BTW, for what I know, the number of abstracts arrived was 103.


    My best

  • Thx David. Some interesting stuff in those abstracts. Just from the few I have looked at so far:


    Ed Betiing of "The Aerospace Corp" has reproduced the Japanese and a "solitary US investigator" with 7.5% over input. He rules out chemical.


    Paul Anderson of the Safire Group, who did the SEMs analysis, and put in a plug for LENR transmutations at that glitzy conference... LENR is occurring in SAFIRE is presenting.


    Dmitre Alexandrov of Lakehead University, has correlated excess heat to He. Attributes the "no radiation" to low amount of gases used in the experiment, and low kinetic energies of the interacting D and H nucleus.


    Biberian recently ran some Pd that Pons gave him in 2001, that was particularly good at producing AHE. It had Silver in only the top 1 micron layer, which he attributes to Pd > Silver transmutations. I could not help but think that Pd Pons gave him, came from the "Johnson Matthey" Type A batch that Fleishmann talked so much of in his Letters to Miles Uploaded Letters from Martin Fleischmann to Melvin Miles


    Still more reading to go.

    Yup. That's where it came from.


  • My theses on ICCF 21 accepted but as to this America to reach to communicate to the people, to look at America, to create new energy together, to rescue the planet, etc. Can naskrepst on the one way ticket.. https://www.dropbox.com/sh/sp7…Tarassenko-Gennadiy-1.pdf

    Zeiner-Gundersen and Olafsson are measuring a decay signal several meters away from the source which reportedly produces ultra-dense hydrogen.


    Some valuable info here in one of the references. To view. copy and paste the link into the address line.

  • Reading on, this abstract from Edmund Storms:

    https://www.dropbox.com/sh/sp7…eview=Storms-Edmund-3.pdf


    Quote

    Studies of LENR using electrolysis frequently employ a catalyst in the cell in order to turn excess D2 and O2 gases back to D2O liquid. Accurate measurement of power require the efficiency of the catalyst to be high and very reliable. The commercial catalysts based on Pd+Al2O3 and Pt+Al2O3 frequently used for this purpose have been found to exhibit poor reliability and novel behavior.


    Quote

    In particular, the catalyst has been observed to show a regular periodic turning on and off that occurs for significant duration at unexpected times. This behavior can give false information about excess energy production by the PdD sample. The behavior allowed an unexpected feature of the recombination process to be revealed.


    Quote

    The recombination reaction was found, on occasion, to produce apparent radiation, which produced heat energy at the surrounding thermoelectric convertors after passing through 3 mm of Pyrex and increased the chemical activity of D in the surface of the cathode after passing through the electrolyte. Use of either normal hydrogen or deuterium in the electrolyte produced the same effect.


    Sounds in part similar to what was reported in this paper by Lalik et al in 2015, who linked the anomalous effect to possibly LENR, although the paper itself wasn't LENR-related:


    https://pubs.acs.org/doi/10.1021/acs.iecr.5b00686

  • Again on Storms from the previous excerpt from one of the ICCF21 abstracts:


    Quote

    [...] The recombination reaction was found, on occasion, to produce apparent radiation, which produced heat energy at the surrounding thermoelectric convertors after passing through 3 mm of Pyrex and increased the chemical activity of D in the surface of the cathode after passing through the electrolyte. Use of either normal hydrogen or deuterium in the electrolyte produced the same effect.


    The thermoelectric effect is usually used to generate electricity from heat, but the opposite can also happen (heat from electricity).


    Probably I'm reading too much into this, but I wonder if that's what is being suggested above, and therefore if the abstract is hinting that the reaction at the Pd/Pt-Al2O3 recombination catalyst sometimes shows anomalous charged particle emission. In that case, it could be due to electrons, high energy protons/deuterons, or something else.
