Several state of the art contributions presented at the International Rainfall Simulator Workshop 2011 at Trier University and the main outcomes of the workshop are presented in this issue. The 1st paper reports constraints, needs and challenges for a future use of small scale simulators in soil erosion research. The 2nd paper presents an experiment with 7 different rainfall simulators from Germany, Spain, Switzerland and the Netherlands on a prepared field in Trier to determine the influence of rainfall simulator type and plot dimensions on runoff and erosion. Additionally, 10 selected papers present an overview of research currently carried out with small scale simulators, including new topics like in situ simulations of "wind-driven rain" and "rain on snow events". The challenges of using small scale rainfall simulations concern the comparability of results and scales, the quality of data for soil erosion modelling, and further technical developments
