Prof. Jerry Westerweel, Delft University of Technology (TUD), The Netherlands, will discuss the theoretical basis of the digital PIV technique.

Prof. Christian Poelma, TUD, will discuss combined PIV/LIF and Micro PIV in his lectures.

Prof. Christian Kähler, UniBw München will discuss Stereo and Multi-plane PIV aspects and the advances in Time Resolved- and long range micro-PIV.

Dr. Bertrand Lecordier, Rouen University (CORIA), France, will present the lectures on the optical aspects of PIV.

Dr. Gerd Gülker, Carl von Ossietzky Universität, Oldenburg, Germany, is working in the field of Holography and Particle Image Velocimetry and will present the lectures on advanced 3D PIV techniques.

Prof. Andreas Schröder, Institute of Aerodynamics and Flow Technology, DLR, Göttingen, will organize the PIV course, which was established in 1993 by Dr. Jürgen Kompenhans. In the past Prof. Markus Raffel and Dr. Christian Willert have provided the foundations of PIV application in wind tunnels. In recent years Dr. Daniel Schanz, Dr. Matteo Novara, Dr. Sebastian Gesemann and Prof. Andreas Schröder provided the foundations of STB and FlowFit applications for fluid mechanics and aerodynamic research.

Together with Prof. Markus Raffel, Dr. Chris Willert, Dr. Klaus Ehrenfried, Dr. Boleslaw Stasicki, Dr. Reinhard Geisler, Dr. Daniel Schanz, Dr. Matteo Novara, Dr. Sebastian Gesemann, Dr. Johannes Bosbach, Dipl.-Ing. Janos Agocs and Dr. Christian Wolf from DLR they will present their knowledge and experience in different areas of the PIV and LPT technique such as tracer particles, illumination, recording, evaluation, data presentation, 3D(t)-PIV / PTV / STB, FlowFit and other 3D3C-PIV and LPT techniques.
