Symposium on New Energy Technology
Division of Environmental Chemistry
237th Spring 2009 National Meeting & Exposition
March 22-26, 2009 - Salt Lake City, Utah, USA
This symposium is a summary of selected experimental and theoretical research performed over the last 20 years that gives profound and unambiguous evidence for low energy nuclear reactions, historically known as cold fusion.
The goal of the field is fabrication of LENR devices with unique commercial potential demonstrating an alternative and renewable energy source to confront climate change and energy scarcity. The research shows promise for a new source of clean nuclear energy that does not produce greenhouse gases, strong prompt radiation or long-lived radioactive waste. A significant part of the research includes low-energy nuclear transmutation that could result in profound applications.
The research collects experimental findings for LENR in order to present reasonable explanations and conclusive theoretical and practical working models.
Unlocking the mysteries of LENR research is one of the most challenging and perhaps important issues in the scientific world. This symposium includes previously unpublished studies, new and controversial theories for approaching LENR and insights that will help audience members evaluate their interest in LENR as a possible alternative energy source.
The historic renewal of interest by the American Chemical Society was welcomed with overwhelmingly positive press coverage in 2007.
History will be made again, in 2009, when the ACS conference takes place not only in the birthplace of "cold fusion," Salt Lake City, but also on the 20th anniversary of its discovery, perhaps to the day.
The ACS, which considers itself the largest science organization in the world, has published the first ACS LENR Sourcebook with the help of New Energy Times.
This book, available now, is a celebrated breakthrough for the field and has been published by the prestigious Oxford University Press. The second volume is in process, and selected papers from the 2009 Salt Lake City meeting will be considered for a third volume.
Speakers for the Salt Lake City ACS conference will receive 25 minutes for their presentations and will be notified of the speaking schedule three months in advance.
DEADLINE - October 20: Authors are required to submit a short abstract (150 words or fewer) and an extended abstract (3 to 4 pages) to the ACS online abstract system (Environmental Division ENVR – Symposium on New Energy Technology) (http://oasys.acs.org/acs/237nm/envr/papers/index.cgi), prepared according to the instructions (http://www.envirofacs.org/) by Oct. 20, 2008.
Several weeks ago, New Energy Institute, the parent organization of New Energy Times, initiated a fund-raising campaign to help bring researchers to this conference who would otherwise not be able to afford the travel expense. New Energy Institute is pleased to report that thanks to the generosity of the Macaulay Lantz Pavilion Foundation and an anonymous donor, all researchers who requested financial support in response to the first distribution of the call for papers will be offered financial support.
