  abstract =     "The computer-controlled operating environments of such
                 facilities as automated factories, nuclear power
                 plants, telecommunication centres and space stations
                 are continually becoming more complex.The situation is
                 similar, if not even more apparent and urgent, in the
                 case of water. Water is not only mankind's most
                 valuable natural resource, but one which is in
                 increasingly limited supply. The fresh water is the
                 vita! natural resource which supports all environmental
                 activities, that is, natura! economy, and all human
                 socio-economic activities, that is, the artificial
                 economy. The pressure for a sustainable control and
                 exploration of water and thus for the peaceful
                 co-existence of human- and hydro-economies, is not only
                 a human, socio-economic pressure, but it is the
                 question of life and death!

                 Hydroinformatics - the nascent technology concerned
                 with the flow of information related to the flow of
                 fluids and all that they convey - is probably the best
                 possible answer yet proposed to the problem of the
                 control of the waters, the very arteries and veins of
                 the biosphere. This work addresses some of the central
                 issues within hydroinformatics paradigm. It focuses on
                 ttie analysis of decentralised and distributed
                 computation, as well as the issues of design of
                 individual computatiorial agents using evolutionary
