19th International Conference on Photoacoustic and Photothermal Phenomena. Bilbao. July 16-20, 2017
Welcome to Bilbao, home of the 19th International Conference on Photoacoustic and Photothermal Phenomena (ICPPP19). This is a biennial meeting whose first edition took place in 1979 at Ames (Iowa, USA) and which, since then, has been hosted by different research groups in this scientific field all over the world. The 19th edition will be hosted by the University of the Basque Country at Bilbao, Spain, from July 16 to 20, 2017.
The ICPPP is recognized as the major venue for the Photoacoustic and Photothermal Phenomena community (scientists, technology developers and technology users) to share their most recent research advances on a series of widespread topics. This year, the programme ranges from the somewhat traditional topics to the newest and exciting developments in a large variety of applications. Fundamental as well as applied research is welcome.
We wish to invite researchers who have an interest in any of the topics of the conference or even in related fields to participate and submit the title and abstract of one or more contributions, sharing their latest research and thus contributing to the success of the conference.
We look forward to welcoming you at Bilbao, the main city on the North of Spain, and seat of the world-known Guggenheim Museum designed by Frank Gehry. Bilbao is also the lead town in our region, the Basque Country, rich in culture, traditions, gastronomy and scenery.
