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 (lasser) optical aspects of PIV.

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, Dr. Jürgen Kompenhans 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, MP-STB and FlowFit data assimilation applications for research in fluid mechanics and aerodynamics.

Together with Prof. Markus Raffel, Dr. Chris Willert, Dr. Klaus Ehrenfried, Dr. Reinhard Geisler, Dr. Daniel Schanz, Dr. Johannes Bosbach, Dr. Stephan Weiss, MSc. Fritz Boden, MSc. Philipp Godbersen, MSc. Tobias Strübing 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.
