16th International Workshop on Anomalies in Hydrogen Loaded Metals
The Bill Collis Memorial Workshop
September 2 – 4, 2024 in Strasbourg, France

with a Special Invitation from CleanHME:
A Program at the European Parliament
September 5, 202

IWAHLM16 The Bill Collis Memorial Workshop will be held in Strasbourg, France between Monday, September 2 through Wednesday, September 4, 2024 courtesy the SFSNMC https://www.sfsnmc.org/  and ISCMNS https://iscmns.org/

This year’s meeting is dedicated to Bill Collis, Founder and first CEO of the International Society of Condensed Matter Nuclear Science ISCMNS who passed away recently.

On Thursday, September 5, IWAHLM16 meeting participants are invited to the European Parliament building in Strasbourg for a program courtesy the European CleanHME project.  Separate registration is required.

Information on both events, including links to register, are at https://iscmns.org/workshops/iwahlm-16.

On Friday, 19 April 2024, Dr. Natalia Targosz-Sleczka will present the CleanHME project to high-school students during the “Science Festival” event in Stargard, Poland. The title of her open talk is “Clean Energy for the Future – CleanHME”. During this talk the students will learn how fusion-based processes can be used to generate energy. Read more here.

Join the CleanHME Program [visit] at the European Parliament buidling in Strasbourg, France on Thursday, September 5, 2024.  Special registration is required.  Lunch included.  Find more information at https://iscmns.org/events/clean-hme-european-parliament-strasbourg.

George Washington University Professor David J. Nagel and colleagues from New York University Computer Science Department have published Towards Understanding Low Energy Nuclear Reactions: Structuring the Literature and Applying Data Analytics.  [.pdf] in the 2024 Proceedings from the 9th International Conference on Big Data Analytics pages 70 – 84. From the Abstract:  “…In this study, we introduce a preliminary framework of analytical tools that could assist the LENR community in accessing literature and applying machine learning for mining insights…….  Through interactive interfaces, we enable targeted investigation of specific reported phenomena.  Findings provide data-driven insights into the connections between concepts like heat, helium, transmutation, and other measured effects. The analysis also identifies key contributing authors, organizations, and publication venues. By moving beyond isolated results to higher level knowledge, this work aims to advance the field by providing revealing relationships in the collective evidence…”

Read up on the JCMNS paper Vladimir Vysotskii and Mykhalo Vysotskii Effective LENR in Weakly Ionized Gas Under the Action of Optimal Pulsed Magnetic Fields and Lightning (Theory and Experiments). [.pdf]. From the Abstract:  “The features and mechanism of LENR production in a system of free particles under the action of a weak impulse (e.g., the action of a pulsed magnetic field) are considered. It is shown that in such a system effective formation of coherent correlated states of particles with the accompanying very sharp increase in the energy fluctuations take place. The amplitude of these fluctuations exceeds by many orders the average thermal energy of the particles and can reach 10–50 keV and more. This mechanism fully explains the nuclear reaction both in the atmosphere during a lightning discharge, and laboratory experiments conducted using electric discharges.”
