Submission details.
Proceedings will be published in the LNCS series. There will be a post-conference volume of selected works published, presumably, in the Annals of Pure and Applied Logic. Submissions should be made electronically via
https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=lfcs2016

Submitted papers must be in PDF/12pt format and of no more than 15 pages, present work not previously published, and must not have been submitted concurrently to another conference with refereed proceedings. LFCS issues the Best Student Paper Award, named after John Barkley Rosser Sr. (1907-1989), a prominent American logician with fundamental contributions in both Mathematics and Computer Science.

Important Dates.
Submissions deadline: midnight September 6 September 13, 2015(EXTENDED), any time zone.
Notification: October 15, 2015.
Symposium dates: January 4 morning – January 7 early afternoon, 2016.

About LFCS.
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 in 1992. LFCS has enjoyed support and endorsements from a number of bodies, including the US National Science Foundation (NSF) and the City University of New York Research Foundation.
