Every two years our community gathers together at the IAHR World Congress, and in August 2017 around 1200 participants from 61 countries met at the Putra World Trade Center in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.  911 full papers were accepted out of 1324 abstracts submitted. The congress covered seven main themes comprising: River and Sediment Management, Flood Management, Environmental Hydraulics and Industrial Flows, Coastal, Estuaries and Lakes Management, Urban Water Management, Water Resources Management, Hydroinformatics/Computational Methods. Our Congress opened on Monday 14th August by The Honourable Deputy Prime Minister of Malaysia. There were a total of 12 keynotes during the week involving leading specialists in the hydro environment domain from around the world. The Congress closed on the Friday after the Malaysian Deputy Minister for Science, Technology and Innovation gave a highly personal talk about his education, and the differ ences between public perception of water and the environment and that of scientists.


Review Process

The papers included in this volume were part of the 37th IAHR World Congress cited on the cover and title page. Papers were selected and subjected to review by the Editor and the International Scientific Committee and followed a revision process with the following steps: First, several of the committees involved in the organization of the congress established a set of technical criteria for the Committee in charge of the revision. Submitted papers were sent to one or two experts in the field. Authors were then asked to include the necessary amendments and follow the reviewers' comments, and their work was reviewed until the final version was approved by the Editor.
