Abstract/Summary The 34th World Congress of the International Association for Hydro-Environment Engineering and Research (IAHR) was held at the Brisbane Convention and Exhibition Centre, Brisbane, Australia, 26th June to 1st July, 2011. Balance and Uncertainty: Water in a Changing World, the main theme of the Congress focuses on the central roles of hydraulic engineering, hydrology and water resources in our changing world, and how these roles link to the broader issues. The Congress itself is a confluence of the 34th World Congress of the International Association for Hydro-Environment Engineering and Research, the 33rd National Hydrology and Water Resources Symposium of Engineers Australia (EA) and the 10th National Conference on Hydraulics in Water Engineering of EA. Some recent natural disasters, including the 2010-11 floods in Australia and the 11 March 2011 earthquake and tsunami in Japan have shown the complex interactions between nature and society. These events have highlighted that careful management and innovative solutions are required to balance these interactions, and solutions must be able to deal with the uncertainty in the natural world as well as our changing human world. A balance must be continually being sought between competing values in water engineering, including the environment, the economy, tourism, social and indigenous values, health aspects, aesthetics and the needs of current and future generations. The seven Scientific Themes of the Congress are: 1. Extremes and Variability 2. Coastal Hydraulics: Form and Function 3. Water and carbon: understanding processes and modelling the impact of climate change 4. Responding to the shifting water resources 5. Environmental Hydraulics and Hydrology 6. Professional Development: Bridging the Gap between Research and Practice 7. Hydroinformatics These themes have been chosen to address the present relevant issues supported
