About the Conference

In 2019, Moscow will host a major international scientific event: the 20th International Conference on Photoacoustic and Photothermal Phenomena, ICPPP-20.

This international conference is biennial, the first ICPPP was held 40 years ago, in 1979, in Ames (Iowa, USA). Since then, this fully fledged scientific meeting has been organized in various countries around the world. The 20th, anniversary, International Conference on Photoacoustic and Photothermal Phenomena ICPPP-20 will be held in Russia for the first time as a token of appreciation of the world community of the Russian national school in photoacoustics, laser physics, and photonics.

The time and place of the conference — 7 to 12 July, 2019 — in the congress center of the Holiday Inn Moscow Sokolniki.

The international community of photoacoustic and photoacoustic spectroscopy connects people of various specialities and branches. Photothermics and photoacoustics unite thefields of laser physics, thermophysics, bio- and nanophotonics, materials science, laser medicine, theranostics, analytical and physical chemistry, thermal analysis, and non-destructive testing and evaluation.

The ICPPP conference series is the major meeting place for many members of the research community working in the field of photoacoustic and photothermal phenomena—scientists, technology developers, and practitioners. These conferences are traditionally the most relevant forum for specialists in these fields.

In addition, ICPPP has developed into the scientific and educational platform for researchers and practitioners in related fields and includes schools for young scientists in various branches.

At ICPPP-20, the program of the event has been expanded in comparison with previous conferences of the series to attract specialists of various specialties. The program will include all the traditional topics of the conferences of this series and a wider representation of interdisciplinary topics, especially in the field of materials science and biomedicine. Both fundamental and applied research are welcome.

The expected number of participants is 250–300 specialists all over the world. Among the speakers at the Conference will be the leading experts in the field of photonics, theranostics, materials science, and laser spectroscopy.

Within the framework of the conference, we plan an exhibition of equipment in the field of photoacoustics, laser equipment, IR spectroscopy, and thermal analysis.

We look forward to welcoming you at Moscow Russia, at the Anniversary Conference on Photoacoustic and Photothermal Phenomena!
