The 10th International Symposium on Interactions Between Sediment and Water was held in Lake Bled, Slovenia from August 28 to September 3, 2005. Approximately 155 delegates, attended the symposium where talks and posters addressed ve themes incorporating the physical, chemical, biological, and/or management aspects of lacustrine, riverine, estuarine, and/or marine sediment were presented. A review of the symposium themes and plenary talks was provided. As well, this symposiums focus is put into context with respect to historical changes noted over the 29 years that the International Association for Sediment Water Science (IASWS) has been meeting. Keywords: sediment, water, aquatic science, IASWS The International Association for Sediment Water Science (IASWS) developed from a meeting in Amsterdam in 1976, held to respond to a need for specic discussions on sedimentwater interactions. At that time collaborations between academic disciplines and/or different aquatic environments was novel, and the value of meeting to discuss riverine, lacustrine and marine sedimentwater issues was recognized, such that it has continued on a 3-year cycle. This 10th symposium held in Lake Bled, Slovenia brought together an interdisciplinary group of 155 scientists from 35 countries that included geochemists, aquatic ecologists, sedimentologists, geomorphologists, environmental engineers and ecosystem man- agers. This symposium was structured around ve themes: (1) Source, fate and effect of sediments in marine
