Organizer, Jan Marwan, first 5 minutes
Steven Krivit, New Energy Times, 6-10 minutes. Overview of the last 20 years
Antonella De Ninno, 10-13 minutes
Pamela Boss, 13-17 minutes, Navy researcher who detected neutrons
John Dash, 17-22 minutes
Mahadeva Srinivasan, 22-28
Q & A 29-45 minutes
Triple Track neutron question and answer 31-32 minute DT fusion consistent neutrons
100-200 researchers is not enough to rapidly solve these issues but progress has been made
37 minutes-44 minutes someone who did not attend the research meetings tries to ask why does this look like regular hot nuclear fusion in terms of reaction products. Answer these are not the same processes.
Old physics in a new context. Not fusion in a plasma but reactions in condensed matter.
44 minutes - Arata's work discussed. Deuterium introduced into apparatus but no power is added. So not excess heat. Just heat production where there would normally be none.

2009/03/23|11:50:20 “Cold fusion” rebirth? New evidence for existence of controversial energy source Researchers are reporting compelling new scientific evidence for the existence of low-energy nuclear reactions (LENR), the process once called “cold fusion” that may promise a new source of energy. One group of scientists, for instance, describe what they term the first clear visual evidence that LENR devices can produce neutrons, subatomic particles that scientists view as tell-tale signs that nuclear reactions are occurring. Low-energy nuclear reactions could potentially provide 21st Century society a limitless and environmentally-clean energy source for generating electricity, researchers say. The report injects new life into this controversial field.

Q&A continues for 13 minutes.
2-5 minutes in talk about the patents that have been awarded
5-6 minute - rumors of DOD, DOE, EPA applications
7-8 minute - Most excess heat, highly reproducible 10-100%, some non-reproducible 1600,2500%.
Thin layers and nano-particles (4-10 nanometer size best) have better reproducibility.
