The tenth anniversity of our conference series was crowned by an exceptional successful and important event. The theme of this year "Underwater Archaeology in University Research and Teaching" has met with great international response, as university courses in this emerging discipline are still in a process of establishment. Hence this occasion was also used to introduce new programmes world-wide. In contrast to the impressive developments and track records of some of our foreign colleagues, the integration of underwater archaeology in the German university system is still unsatisfactory. Although several efforts have been made - particularly in Kiel - to comprise underwater archaeology, a thorough review of archaeology curricula has not taken place. This problem was discussed in following a round table debate with representatives of the German Archaeological Institute and the Kommission für Unterwasserarchäologie (KUWA) et. al.
