Intensive development of photoacoustic and photothermal techniques in the past decades has led them no longer being considered just as research topics, but now as practical and unique measuring tools. The Conference on Photoacoustic and Photothermal Theory and Applications (CPPTA) will benefit every scientist or engineer who deals with photoacoustic or photothermal techniques, whether as topics or tools of research. The conference is planned to be a venue where researchers can share their experiences and ideas. Its scope will cover virtually all the aspects of photoacoustic, photothermal and related research, including theory, instrumentation and a wide range of applications.
We strongly encourage young researchers to participate in the conference. They will have the opportunity not only to present the results of their research, but most of all, to learn about the latest discoveries and trends, meet the world’s experts in the fields of PA / PT, and listen to speeches, during which top international scientists will summarize their experiences and talk about new ideas and perspectives of further development in the PA and PT fields.
Selection of the works to be accepted for presentation at the conference in oral or poster form will be based on the quality of submitted abstracts. Decisions will be made by the conference’s scientific committee. All the manuscripts submitted for publication after presentation at the conference will be subjected to peer review. The accepted papers will be published in a JCR indexed journal (papers from the past CPPTA conferences were published in the International Journal of Thermophysics; IF=0.963).
