Last August 6, National Instruments started its annual NIWeek conference. Topics were related to NI’s work in developing hardware and software used for measurement and control in science and engineering. Activities held included workshops, presentations and exhibitions. This year’s NIWeek Conference also featured Low Energy Nuclear Reactions or LENR which apparently receives much attention interest from people around the world. It is a public knowledge that NI has been involved in the development of LENR. As a matter of fact, they have been following the growth and development of Italian inventor’s Andrea Rossi’s e-cat LENR technology. National Instruments Director of Science and Big Physics Segment Stefano Concezzi stated that the company was deeply involved in working with important LENR researchers around the world. The conference will also highlight presentations from various people in the LENR world.
The following day, August 7, an hour panel discussion will take place entitled, “The Quest for Alternative Energy—Anomalous Heat Effect (a.k.a. Cold Fusion)”. It will feature panelists who are experts in the LENR field including Akito Takahashi of Technova Inc., Andrea Aparo of Ansaldo Energia, Michael McKubre of SRI International, Robert Duncan of the University of Missouri, and Robert Godes of Brillouin. Rossi e-cat reactor is a cold fusion/LENR technology that produces massive amounts of heat and is now known as a powerful, alternative source of energy.
A 30-minute presentation on “The Status of CMNS/CF/LENR Research at Kobe-Technova” by Akito Takahashi of Technova Inc. is scheduled to take place on Wednesday, August 8. On the same day, Robert Godes of Brillouin Energy will talk about “The Commercialization of LENR Technology” in a 30-minute session. A Big Physics and Science Poster Session will also be held on August 8. The session will “reviews the technical papers, projects, and research work of scientists and engineers from different labs and commercial companies.” Alexandros Xanthoulis, George Xanthoulis, James Dunn, John Hadjichristos and Symeon Tsalikoglou of Defkalion Green Technologies; Francesco Celani of INFN; Peter Hagelstein of MIT; and Frank Gordon retired of SPAWAR are among the presenters at this session.
This is good news in the field of LENR as well as the e-cat LENR technology of Rossi. Hopefully, these presentations will inspire the attendees to open their mind towards LENR especially the people who work in the mainstream of science and engineering. There are many talks about LENR during the conference and it is hoped that it will provide significant and the latest information about the controversial field that challenges the scientific circles.
