The LFCS series provides an outlet for the fast-growing body of work in 
the logical foundations of computer science, e.g., areas of fundamental 
theoretical logic related to computer science. The LFCS series began 
with Logic at Botik, Pereslavl-Zalessky, 1989 and was co-organized by 
Albert R. Meyer (MIT) and  Michael Taitslin (Tver), after which 
organization passed to Anil Nerode.
