These days, a conference on LENR is being held at the College of William and Mary. Located in Williamsburg, VA in the U.S., this symposium features speakers that are familiar to the LENR circuit, such as Peter Hagelstein, Rob Duncan, and Jed Rothwell. While the general media is mostly ignoring The symposium, leaving reporting on this growing technology to internet media that follow these developments.
The event is titled “International Low Energy Nuclear Reactions Symposium, ILENRS-12”. The summary of the symposium, which lasts for July 1,2, and 3, is to:
“…review LENR’S current theoretical and experimental status, including updating recent results. Expert panel discussions will evaluate the present state of the art and define future directions, including establishment of criteria for creating university-based, state-of-the-art LENR research and development centers.”
This August, National Instruments, based in Austin Texas, will hold a conference called its Annual NIWeek. Among other presenters will be the Senior Advisor of Technova Inc. in Japan. Akito Takahashi is also retired from Osaka University, and has researched LENR for a long time. Takahashi will present a 30 minute long introduction to LENR for the purpose of making the attendees familiar with the possibilities of the technology.
National Instruments is not new to LENR. The company was in discussions with Andrea Rossi for a while, and has maintained its interest in LENR. National Instruments, along with a growing number of universities, NASA, CERN, and Toyota, among others, have given more and more attention to the possibilities of cold fusion and LENR. Rossi, however, appears to be closest at this time to releasing a certified LENR e-cat plant unit.
