This paper gives an overview of the poster sessions on sensor/monitoring, control and decision support systems, as they have been presented during the Watermatex 2000 conference. The COST benchmark for the comparison of different control strategies has been analysed. Two different teams have performed research on the control of sewers to decrease combined sewer overflows. Extended methods for gauge monitoring accuracy are proposed. The use of adaptive controllers for improving control performance under varying process conditions is demonstrated in two applications. More advanced techniques for monitoring and control are also discussed. Applications are situated in the field of fault detection and control. Three posters on decision support systems have presented the methodology and architecture of specific applications. Rewarded posters are mentioned and have been selected for full paper publication in this issue of Wat. Sci. Tech.
