About FLoC

During the past forty years there has been extensive, continuous, and growing interaction between logic and computer science. In many respects, logic provides computer science with both a unifying foundational framework and a tool for modeling. In fact, logic has been called "the calculus of computer science", playing a crucial role in diverse areas such as artificial intelligence, computational complexity, distributed computing, database systems, hardware design, programming languages, and software engineering.

The Federated Logic Conference brings together several international conferences related to mathematical logic and computer science.


In 1996, as part of its Special Year on Logic and Algorithms, DIMACS hosted the first Federated Logic Conference (FLoC'96), which brought together four synergistic conferences:

The 1999 Federated Logic Conference (FLoC'99) was held in Trento, Italy. In addition to 16th CADE, 11th CAV, 14th LICS and 10th RTA, it comprised 15 affiliated workshops.

The 2002 Federated Logic Conference (FLoC'02) took place in Copenhagen, Denmark. It merged 18th CADE, 14th CAV, 17th LICS and 13th RTA with:

and with 31 affiliated workshops.

The 2006 Federated Logic Conference (FLoC'06) was held in Seattle, USA. In addition to 18th CAV, 21st LICS, 17th RTA and 22nd ICLP, it combined:

with 41 affiliated workshops.
