This volume, the sixth publication in the Lecture Notes in Logic series, collects the proceedings of the conference ‘Logical Foundations of Mathematics, Computer Science, and Physics – Kurt Gödel’s Legacy’, held in Brno, Czech Republic, on the 90th anniversary of Gödel’s birth. The broad range of speakers who participated in this event affirms the continuing importance of Gödel’s work in logic, physics, and the philosophy and foundations of mathematics and computer science. The papers in this volume range over all these topics and contribute to our present understanding of them.
