The symposium The Seventh International Symposium on Particle Image took place on 11–14 September 2007 and was chaired by Velocimetry is part of a successful biennial series, and the Professor Giovanni Paolo Romano. Five invited lectures by next symposium will be held in Melbourne on 25–28 experts in PIV and related topics (Prof. Katz, Prof. Willert, August 2009, hosted by Prof. Julio Soria. Prof. Matsumoto, Prof. Scarano and Prof. Antonia) and With this issue, we hope to stimulate readers and authors almost 140 papers were presented during 4 days.
