The 13th International Symposium on Particle Image Velocimetry

July 22-24, 2019

Munich, Germany

Particle Image Velocimetry (PIV) has become the standard technique for flow measurements in transparent fluids in both fundamental research and industrial applications. PIV has been benefitted significantly from hardware and processing innovations in recent years. Volumetric and time-resolved velocity measurements are possible now. At the same time, the range of applications has broadened: PIV is routinely applied in aerodynamics, multiphase flows, microfluidics and in biological applications. The technique can be extended with complementary techniques (e.g. laser-induced fluorescence) to simultaneously measure scalars such as concentration and temperature.

This symposium, to be held in Munich (Germany) from 22-24 July 2019, will bring together PIV users and developers from around the world. It is the 13th event in this biannual symposium series, following successful previous symposia such as Busan (Korea, 2017) or Santa Barbara (CA, USA, 2015). The main objective of the symposium is to exchange the latest research results in the development of PIV-related techniques and innovative applications.
