Contributions are solicited according to the following themes, themes A through I.

Themes

A.. Increasing our understanding of ‘systems function’: research, tools and methodologies to increase understanding and improving modelling of the hydro(geo)logical, geochemical and biochemical processes
B.. Water quality monitoring: improving monitoring, data management and combined monitoring-modelling to support the evaluation of programmes of measures
C.. Impact of climate change on land use and water quality: assessment of impact on groundwater and surface water quality
D.. Assessment of national or regional policy: effectiveness of programmes of measures on water quality on a regional and national scale
E.. Improving water quality by farm management practices: research (monitoring and modelling) at plot, field and catchment scales to quantify the effects of farming practices and changes in land use
F.. Improving water quality by establishing eco-technological mitigation measures: development, testing, implementation and operation at plot, field and catchment scales to quantify the effects of structural measures
G.. Managing protected areas for water supply and nature conservation: risk assessment techniques, monitoring and modelling of water quality and quantity for the protection of (a) water resources for drinking water supply, and (b) groundwater dependent terrestrial ecosystems
H.. Decision-making on Programmes of Measures: the role of stakeholder input and science in policy decision-making
I.. Implementation of Programmes of Measures: social and economic incentives and regulatory mandates that drive implementation (carrots and sticks)
