Tesla Conference 2011: Exploring Tesla’s Technology

Posted September 21, 2011

The Tesla Science Center at Wardenclyffe, Shoreham, NY, is organizing a day-long conference on November 5, 2011 at Brookhaven National Laboratory on Long Island.

The purpose of the conference is to exchange information about the current status and future directions of wireless technology and to highlight the life and accomplishments of Nikola Tesla, the father of wireless technology. We also hope to raise interest (and funds) to purchase Tesla’s last remaining laboratory, just nine miles from the conference site, in Shoreham, NY. This Stanford White-designed building is in poor condition and is in danger of being lost forever if action is not taken soon. The Tesla Science Center at Wardenclyffe plans to restore the building and create a science and education center on the site.

There will be both technical and “popular” presentations and exhibits at the conference, including a full day of speakers and presentations from Tesla researchers, biographers, filmmakers, and internationally recognized scientists.

Among the speakers and presenters will be scientists, historians, Tesla researchers and biographers, musicians, and filmmakers, including: Dr. James Corum, Dr. Marc Seifer, Kenneth Corum, Dr. Nikolaos Simos, Robert Lundquist, Constance Gibson Currie, Joseph Sikorski, and Kip Rosser.

Concurrently, ham radio enthusiasts will be holding a ham fest, transmitting from places where Tesla lived and worked around the world! This will be in conjunction with the 90th Anniversary Celebration of the RCA property in Rocky Point.
