A compilation of papers presented at th 2001 European Summer Meeting of the Association for Symboli Logic, Logic Colloquium 01 includes surveys and research article from some of the worlds preeminent logicians. Two long article are based on tutorials given at the meeting and present accessibl expositions of research in two active areas of logic, geometri model theory and descriptive set theory of group actions.

The remaining articles cover seperate research topics in many areas of mathematical logic, including applications in Computer Science, Proof Theory, Set Theory, Model Theory, Computability Theory, and aspects of Philosophy.
