During the first decade of the 21st century, the limitations of the global water resources, however, became evident in a way that<span class="external-identifiers"> <a target="_blank" rel="external noopener" href="https://fatcat.wiki/release/sbwwr3rf5fg2lasbauh3o7ffue">fatcat:sbwwr3rf5fg2lasbauh3o7ffue</a> </span>

Taking into account the multiplicity of water grades and water utilization requirements, we face a complex real-time management problem of matching current water demands with frequently very limited water supplies of appropriate quality and quantity. The IWRM Karlsruhe 2010 conference, including an accompanying exhibition, sets out to establish a biannual platform for an international exchange of methods for and application experiences on up-to-date and future Integrated Water Resource Management (IWRM). IWRM Karlsruhe 2010 will bring together a global water management community from approximately 20 countries worldwide. The topic areas ranging from rainwater retention and storage via waste water management, water ingredients management, water resource management and modeling, up to water management under extreme conditions. Within the three water consuming communities (agriculture, households, industry) IWRM Karlsruhe 2010 draws attention to agriculture and to the use of waste water for irrigation. A main area of the conference programme deals with mathematical modeling of water processes including seepage. Further highlights are the inf luences of climate change and capacity building in water resource management. The conference proceedings in hand comprise four keynotes and 60 papers which are arranged in three so called "tracks": Water Utilization, Water Processes and Water Management Methods. These tracks will provide guidance for our visitors through the broad thematic offer of IWRM Karlsruhe 2010. The scope of the IWRM Karlsruhe 2010 conference has been developed by its advisory board, listed overleaf, which also served as the programme committee. The editor wants to express his sincere thanks to all members of the advisory board as well as to many highly motivated and competent supporters from Messe Karlsruhe and from the Fraunhofer Institute of Optronics, System Technologies and Image Exploitation (Fraunhofer IOSB, Karlsruhe). The Editor and the Advisory Board would be delighted to start, based on the IWRM Karlsruhe 2010 conference proceedings, a biannual publication platform on the status and the future of integrated water management worldwide.
