The 2014 CF/LANR Colloquium will be held Friday, Saturday, and Sunday March 21-23, 2014 at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) in Cambridge, MA USA.

This event will mark the 25th anniversary of the announcement of the discovery of cold fusion by Drs. Martin Fleischmann and Stanley Pons on March 23, 1989.
While mainstream science institutions have refused to acknowledge the field, the breakthrough energy science has developed in part through the International Conference on Cold Fusion (ICCF) which has held eighteen events that bring scientists together from around the world to discuss their findings. The next ICCF-19 is scheduled for March 2015, which makes the 2014 LANR/CF Colloquium one of the year’s top cold fusion meetings.
Sponsored by JET Energy, Inc. and Nanortech, companies headed by Dr. Mitchell Swartz, the CF/LANR Colloquium is the sixth such event held since 2005 that discusses both the scientific and engineering aspects of cold fusion, also called lattice-assisted nuclear reactions (LANR), including theory, physics, electrochemistry, material science, metallurgy, physics, and electrical-engineering.
JET Energy and Nanortech produced the NANOR-device demonstrated at MIT during the 2012 Cold Fusion 101 course, which ran continuously for five months and was open-to-the-public. The NANOR is a tiny, dry, pre-loaded with hydrogen fuel, nano-material, two-terminal component that generate excess energy gain. Massachusetts State Senator Bruce Tarr witnessed the event, and is now a supporter of the pioneer technology.
2014 Colloquium speakers include Peter Hagelstein, Mitchell Swartz, Larry Forsley, Frank Gordon, Pamela Mosier-Boss, George Miley, Tom Claytor, Mel Miles, John Dash, Yiannis Hadjichristos, Yeong Kim, Brian Ahern, Robert Smith, John Fisher, Vladimir Vysotskii, Yasuhiro Iwamura, and Charles Beaudette.

Make plans to attend the Colloquium now, as area hotels may fill quickly during MIT’s spring break week, beginning that weekend.
This Colloquium will follow a planned 2014 IAP Cold Fusion 1.01 course scheduled for the end of January during the week of 1/27-1/31 at 10:30AM-1:30PM.
