Abstract: This six-volume collection contains the papers presented at the 27th Congress of the International Association of Hydraulic Research on Water for a Changing Global Community. The Proceedings covers four basic themes: 1) Managing water: coping with scarcity and abundance; 2) environmental and coastal hydraulics: protecting the aquatic habitats; 3) groundwater: an endangered resource; and 4) energy and water: sustainable development. Each theme contains a keynote address and a combination of technical papers generated by topic convenors and the general call for papers. The base themes are complemented by papers presented in the John F. Kennedy Student Paper Competition, and by summaries of the following Specialty Seminars: 1) multidirectional waves and their interaction with structures; 2) modelling of turbulent flows; 3) wind energy and windflow around structures; 4) continuing education and training; 5)management of hydraulic research; and 6) hydroinformatics for control, management, and risk assessment.
