16th INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE ON CONDENSED
MATTER NUCLEAR SCIENCE
CHENNAI, INDIA.
FEBRUARY 6 -11, 2011



 

 


Dr P.K. Iyengar
Chairman, National Steering Committee
(Former Chairman, Atomic Energy Commission,
Government of India)


"I extend a hearty welcome to all the participants of ICCF 16. This is the first time a meeting of the ICCF conference series is being held in India. It is fortuitous that the dates of the meeting coincides with the centenary of the discovery of the atomic nucleus and the birth of the discipline of "Nuclear" science. We are endeavouring to make it a scientifically stimulating and successful event with three satellite programs added. I look forward to meeting you all at Chennai in February, 2011"
 

Prof. Xing Zhong Li, Professor Emeritus, Tsinghua University, Beijing , China
President, International Society for Condensed Matter Nuclear Science (ISCMNS)


“I am very happy that ICCF 16 is being organized in Chennai, India under the auspices of the International Society for Condensed Matter Nuclear Science (ISCMNS) in collaboration with renowned professional scientific bodies of India such as The Indian Physics Association (IPA) and the Indian Nuclear Society (INS). This is the first time that ISCMNS is associated with the organization of an ICCF series conference since its founding in 2002. The CMNS community eagerly looks forward to the re-emergence of India as a key player in the field. We are confident that the advances in the field to be communicated at the conference will inspire more young researchers to enter the field! I wish the conference all success.”
 

Dr.Bikash Sinha,
Former President, Indian Physics Association

"The central motivation of science is to understand Nature a little better - the rest is only the frill of the contemporary fashion and prejudices. The subject of this conference has puzzled Physicists for two decades and the field promises to be rich with marvellous possibilities and surprises.

The Indian Physics Association is happy to be associated with its organization and extends a very warm welcome to all the participants!"


Dr. Baldev Raj,
Director, Indira Gandhi Centre for Atomic Research
President, Kalpakkam Chapter of the Indian Nuclear Society
Vice President, Materials Research Society of India


“The Indira Gandhi Centre for Atomic Research (IGCAR) and the Kalpakkam branches of the Indian Nuclear Society (INS) and the Materials Research Society of India (MRSI) are happy to be associated with the organization of ICCF 16 in the Chennai region. The curious puzzle in Condensed Matter Nuclear Science is how loading of hydrogen or deuterium in a metallic Pd lattice with chemical energy inputs of the order of a few eV can trigger nuclear reactions generating energy of the order of several MeV. Clearly materials issues appear to hold the key to arriving at a satisfactory understanding of Low Energy Nuclear Reaction (LENR) phenomena. The role of hydrogen isotopes in metal systems is a venerable classical topic which has already received considerable attention in the nuclear industry and may provide some insights in this context.

Also the intriguing reports of the occurrence of nuclear transmutation reactions in biological systems which is to be discussed in a post conference workshop is of topical interest to the challenge of nuclear waste management and deserves attention.

I look forward to interactions with the international experts in these topics and wish the conference all success
