    We are excited to both remind you of and announce 2! special issues in the Journal of Hydroinformatics that will follow this conference. For one, as is tradition, we will target a special issue for some of the best papers presented at this conference with a “General” scope. In addition, we are happy to announce a special issue on “Online Water Data Networks: Methods, Standards, Tools, and Technologies”, for which we have been able to win over Dr. Boyan Brodaric as Guest Editor. Please note that the special issues will follow the general procedure of submission, rigorous peer-review, and publication just as any other unsolicited submission and that each submission must feature at least 50% new material compared to the paper presented at the HIC2014.


Hydroinformatics is a strongly inter-disciplinary field, which links water and environmental problems with various computational modelling methods and fast developing information and communication technologies. Especially the need to standardize and harmonize data protocols and descriptions has prompted many researchers to seek approaches and solutions to overcome data and communication heterogeneity aimed at increased levels of interoperability between different data systems. Hence, a special focus of this conference will be the assessment of the current state of the development of data management (in the broadest sense) approaches that address important aspects related to data storage, data curation, data interoperability, data registration, data provenance, data stewardship, and data annotations. Finding solutions to these challenging problems requires close collaboration between scientists – established as well as young ones, – informaticists, software developers, practitioners, and stake holders from public and federal organizations. So we encourage you to contribute to the development of future solutions and to widen your own expertise and profile by attending and participating in the conference. This event is the latest in a well-established series of bi-annual Hydroinformatics conferences started in the early nineties. Furthermore this conference is supported by three world-leading international organisations, IAHR (International Association of Hydro-Environment Engineering and Research), IAHS (International Association of Hydrological Sciences) and IWA (International Water Association). On behalf of the organizing committee, we invite you to come to the “big apple” as New York City is also called and to enjoy a few days in one of the most exciting cities in the world.
