Location

The Workshop was held near Siena at the Certosa di Pontignano in Tuscany, central Italy. This is a 14th century cloistered monastery now owned by the University of Siena and converted exclusively for conference use.  The Certosa's website at http://www.unisi.it/servizi/certosa/ which includes photographs and directions.  It can accommodate about 90 visitors.

The hamlet of Pontignano is situated in the countryside about 10km north of the beautiful medieval city of Siena.   It is an ideal base from which to explore Tuscany.  Florence is some 45 minutes away by car. 

Workshop Goals and Format

High temperature gas loading is a promising technology to reliably create thermal and nuclear anomalies.  The purpose of the workshop is to bring together an international group of experts to present their results and encourage discussion.  The emphasis is on experimental innovation, methods, instrumentation and diagnostics.  To achieve this objective the organizers have booked

Presentations

The program  consisted of both invited and contributed talks of 30 minutes.   The Coolessence paper,"Deuterium & hydrogen loading into nano-Pd on zeolite and alumina matrices at low pressures", presented orally and as a poster, received an absolute majoity of votes and Olga Dmitreyeva, as oral presenter, was presented the ISCMNS bronze medal for "Best Poster Paper" during the banquet.

 Papers may also be submitted to the electronic journal Condensed Matter Nuclear Science and peer reviewed.
