The Sixteenth International Conference on Photothermal and Photoacoustic Phenomena (16th ICPPP) was held in Mérida, Yucatán, México from November 27 to December 1, 2011. The ICPPP is well established and widely recognized, since 1979, as the major venue for the dissemination of recent and significant research results in the traditional areas, as well as in new and exciting outgrowths of this interdisciplinary field. The 16th ICPPP brought together scientists, engineers, and developers from a very broad spectrum of disciplines whose common area of interest and activities is related with the development and use of methodologies involving the propagation and detection of acoustic, thermal, and general diffusion waves, with applications in materials science, instrumentation, technology, biomedicine, and biology.

This event was organized by Centro de Investigacion y de Estudios Avanzados del Instituto Politecnico Nacional (CINVESTAV-IPN) and Centro de Investigaciones en Optica (CIO). During
