Instrumentation, control and automation (ICA) in the water industry has come a long way in the three decades since the first IAWPR workshops on the subject and is now a well established and recognised area of technology. This has resulted from a combination of factors: improvements in the capabilities of hardware and software, developments in theoretical understanding and practical applications, and a wider awareness of the power of ICA. These developments continue at pace, and so the heavyweight programme of the 8th conference in this series (the first under the banner of the International Water Association) attracted a large attendance. A central goal of the conference was to link practical operating experience with new research results on sensor technology, instrumentation, control, and automation systems. This is important in both water and wastewater treatment and transport systems, which incorporate increasingly complex measurement systems, information technology, control systems and human interaction. From the extensive programme 60 papers were selected by a thorough review procedure for these selected proceedings. Topics covers include: process control; sensors for wastewater characterization; benchmarking for control strategy development and testing; sensors for monitoring and detection; process monitoring, detection and early warning systems; process and plant-wide control approaches; modeling and simulation; network control and integrated approaches; applied control; and operational support and experiences. They provide a genuinely state-of-the-art compilation in a field of central importance to water and wastewater.
