Particle Image Velocimetry (PIV) has become the standard technique for flow measurement in both fundamental research and for industrial applications. In recent year, the technique has been significantly expanded through hardware and processing innovations: fully time-resolved, volumetric velocity measurements are now possible. 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 Busan from 19-21 June 2017, will bring together PIV users and developers from around the world. It is the 12th insta llment in a biannual symposium series, following successful previous symposia such as Santa Barbara, CA, USA 2015), Delft, Netherlands (2013). The main objective of the symposium is to exchange the latest research results in the development of PIV-related techniques and innovative applications.
