1. ICCF10 was held

ICCF10 was held at Cambridge, Massachusetts from August 24 to 29.

This Conference had several peculiarities different from former ICCFs. One of them, inconvenient to us, participants, is scarce announcements from Organizing Committee and we have to visit often the ICCF10 website to know what we need to do next. Information about submitting manuscripts to two versions of the ICCF-10 Proceedings posted at the website is copied below (2): two kinds of manuscripts, one to be printed and another to be posted at Jed Rothwellfs website, are expected to send to the same e-mail address that may induce confusion in handling them appropriately.

I have sent a manuscript (attached to this News) to be published in the Proceedings printed by World Scientific Publishing and waiting correspondence about it from the Editors.

I could attend the Conference only two days on August 24 and 25. Looking into the Abstract of Papers (cited in the second article of this News), there are many experimental data confirming reality of the cold fusion phenomenon that is already apparent for us from data obtained by now.

I was shocked by an information disclosed by a letter (cited partially below in (1)) from an Italian scientist to Organizing Committee. It revealed unbelievable hostile reaction from physicists belonging to established fields of physics against researches on the cold fusion phenomenon.

The origins of such an attitude of physicists in the established fields are clearly due to their narrow and short-sighted points of view. It is, however, noticed that we, researchers in this field, did not make enough efforts to communicate with them on scientific bases. It is desirable to discuss ourselves scientifically in our field based on experimental data obtained in these more than 13 years to make them recognize reality of the cold fusion phenomenon.

The Italian scientist has written, gsomething else but science can be taken into account in this fieldh to improve the situation. It will be helpful to do something but the most necessary and important thing is scientific effort accepted and esteemed by them as common properties of science.


(1) A letter from an Italian scientist (final part); hOf course my scientific interest in cold fusion is now increased by the feeling to be closer than ever to the goal, but it seems that something else but science can be taken into account in this field. I wish you succeed in your researches and really hope to meet you again in future ICCFs.h


(2) From ICCF10 website: gThe ICCF-10 conference finished on August 29. The conference abstracts and other information on this website has been transferred to a new section at An electronic version of the proceedings will be established there as papers from the authors are received. This site will be maintained for a few months. NOTICE: The ICCF-10 Steering Committee, in its infinite wisdom, has taken pity on the authors and moved the deadline from Sept. 10 to Oct. 1, 2003. Please repay this consideration with your prompt submission.

Authors contributing papers to the proceedings will find instructions below.

Intrrctions to Authors

Scientists presenting oral or poster presentations are expected to contribute manuscripts to the conference proceedings. We will publish two versions of the ICCF-10 Proceedings:

1. A hardbound book printed by World Scientific Publishing. Figures must be in black and white, and page length is limited to 12 pages for Plenary Talks and 6 pages for Poster Session-only papers. Detailed instructions from World Scientific are shown below. Please submit this version of your paper to to We will check submissions for e-mail viruses and forward them to Peter Hagelstein and Scott Chubb.

2. An unoffical, online, electronic version in a new section of This is optional; let us know if you do not want to be included. There are no restrictions to this version. You may, of course, use the exact same version as the World Scientific paper. Or, if you prefer, you can submit a longer version with as many color graphs, illustrations and photographs as you like. Simply send the expanded version to with a different title. When you submit a paper to the on-line proceedings, we may edit it for spelling and grammar. As soon as it is completed to your satisfaction we will upload it. We will not wait for the printed version of the proceedings to be published, and we will not wait for papers from other authors to arrive. You may submit papers in any common word processor format such as Microsoft Word or WordPerfect. We will convert your paper to Acrobat format. We can accept an Acrobat file, but it is usually easier for us to deal with word processor formats.

LENR-CANR also welcomes copies of your PowerPoint presentations or poster session material. You can incorporate PowerPoint slides in your paper, or submit them as a separate document, to be listed separately in the LENR-CANR Library index.

If you have figures or drawings only on paper, not in a computer format, or you have files too large to be sent by e-mail, mail them to:
