It is difficult for me to communicate with just this itty-bitty computer, so I will probably not say much more. But anyway --
Overall, I would say the people selected to give oral presentations have upped their game. The quality is better than most previous conferences. Several other experimental papers impressed me. I will list them below. Here are all the abstracts:
Letts & Cravens
Mizuno (if I do say so myself)
Hioki - These two describe different aspects of the same project. Unfortunately, the funding for it ended last year
Zeiner-Gunderson - Both about Holmlid. Not exactly cold fusion, but good.
That's just the first two days. Impressive.
Note that I cannot judge theory papers and I have nothing to say about them.
