Program for ICCF19 Conference in Padua, Italy Published

The program of speakers has been published on the website for the ICCF19 conference which will be taking place in Padua Italy, April 13-17. Here’s the link:

There are a some familiar and unfamiliar names to me on the program, and some interesting topics — it looks like the will be a mixture of discussion between palladium-deuterium, and nickel-hydrogen LENR systems, along with some more broad-based topics.

A few presentations on the program stand out to me particularly:

Violante Vittorio: “Heat Production and RF detection during cathodic polarization of Palladium in O.1 MLiOD”  — (I wonder if he discussed this with Bill Gates at ENEA last year)

Kidwell, David: “Observations of RF Emissions and heat in electrochemical loading experiments” — (More on RF emissions)

Hubler, Graham (of the Univ. of Missouri SKINR Institute): “On a Possible Cosmological Explanation for the Anomalous Heat Effect” — (Andrea Rossi has said that astronomical observations inform his LENR theory)

Iwamura, Yasuhiro: “The Launch of a New Scheme on CMNS at Tohoku University” — (This new program for the study of LENR was recently reported at

Grimshaw, Thomas: “Integrated Policymaking for Realizing LENR Benefits and Mitigating Its Impacts of LENR” — (A discussion on public policy to effect a smooth transition to a world with LENR power available)

Goryachev, Igor Viteliavich: “Technology of Environmentally Clean Remediating Radioactive Waste Based on Low Energy Transumation of Radioactive Nuclides” — (LENR to clean up nuclear contamination — if it works well, this would be an extremely popular application, I would guess)

Vandenberghe, Michel (CEO LENR-Cities) “Society and New LENR Technologies” — (This will follow the LENR-Cities meeting in Milan on April 10, where Michel has said they will be making some important announcements)

Katinsky, Steven: “Industrial Association for LENR” — (Perhaps the announcement of an Industry group?)

Alexander Parkhomov is not yet listed as one of the speakers, but he does have a poster session listed: “Research on High-Temperature Rossi Heat Source Analogue”. I am sure he will be busy answering questions about that!

Today, here on E-Cat World, Bob Greenyer posted that the MFMP are planning to run an ‘off-off-broadway’ replication attempt at the place where they are staying. So that will be interesting to follow too.

Unfortunately I won’t be able to attend this conference, but looking at the list of speakers it looks to be a very interesting program and I look forward to catching up on all the news coming out of Padua.

  • GreenWin

    Steve Katinsky and David Nagel (George Washington Univ /NRL) have written an interesting proposal to form an association of industry for LENR businesses.

  • Mats002

    One topic is Public policys for a smooth transition to LENR. Will this be biased towards promotion or regulations? I hope for promotion.

    • Omega Z

      The nature of this technology is already regulated.
      Note: 2/3rds of all the energy you pay for are in the products you buy. Not in what you use as an individual.Your use (1/3rd) includes H/C Electrical & transportation needs)

      • Mats002

        You have a good point. What kind of policys do you think will be discussed? I can imagine regulations for control of LENR research or how to promote public fundings for LENR research. Not sure what to expect from that topic.

        • Omega Z

          “What kind of policys do you think will be discussed?”

          Probably nothing along our lines of thinking. They will be working from a slightly different perspective then what we discuss here at ECW.

          My personal view is that this technology will only be disruptive in respect to peoples perceptions. It will initially impact stocks & such which is a valid concern. Once reality sets in, this should not be an issue & things will stay much the same. This will after all be a long drawn out transition. The shear scale of the transition assures this.

          Consider this perspective. A new car comes out that gets 300 miles to the gallon. There will be an initial uptick in sales & that will be it. It’s a financial thing. You’ll buy 1 when you can afford it or when your current model falls apart. Also, as others buy them, gas prices decline & the urgency to buy one tapers off.

          LENR will follow a similar path, But at some extended point in time(Maybe 20 years or so), there will be another surge in transition as the old will eventually become to expensive to continue on whether as electrical or heat production. I know many don’t see it this way, but it’s all just simple economics.

  • AlainCo

    there are many presentation around RF/laser question :
    Vittorion Violante, Peter Hagelstein, Kidwell, Mastromatteo

  • AlainCo

    parkhomov is among the posters it seems.

    • AlainCo

      Peter gluck noticed Biberian too:
      “What has our dear veteran friend achieved in replicating Parkhomov, great question:
      4- Jean-Paul Biberian
      Experimental Evidence of Excess Heat by Mass Flow Calorimetry with Ni-LiAlH4 Powder

      notice also Brillouin

      “10- Robert E. GodesBrillouin Energy Test Results of CECR Hypothesis”

      plus add David Nagel on high power density event…

      • Sanjeev

        Has JPB already replicated Parkhomov ? Can you or someone find out ?
        I mean why will he present an “experimental evidence” if he failed ?
        Hoping for good news.

        • AlainCo

          anegative resuld done by someone who really tried is interesting…
          but yes , I imagine he have something to say. no news however.

      • Ronzonni

        Thanks. I was hoping to see something like “10 kilowatts constant output for 8 weeks from 2 grams of powder, self-sustaining” but then I am an optimist.
