Water is molecule number 1 in the HITRAN linelist and the correct treatment of its spectroscopic properties is crucial to the enduring success the database. Recently a task group entitled \A database of water transitions from experiment and theory" has been formed under the auspices of IUPAC to address issues related to the spectroscopy of water not just at cool, atmospheric temperatures, but also at the high temperatures required by many other terrestrial and astronomic applications.

To this end the task group has identified the following sub-topics that need to be addressed: spectra of water at 300 K, database structure, spectra of hot water, line profiles, theory and computation of water spectra, and validation. Progress in this activity will be presented at the meeting
