Description: 

We are soliciting papers on logical aspects of fault tolerance. The 
concept of
?fault? underlies essentially all computational systems that have any 
goal.
Loosely speaking, a fault is an unintended event that can have an 
unintended
effect on the attainment of that goal. ?Fault tolerance? is the term given 
to a system?s ability to cope in some way with a fault, either inherently 
or through design. Fault tolerance has been studied for its application to 
circuits, and then branching out to distributed systems and more recently 
to quantum computers, where the concern with fault tolerance is almost the 
paramount issue. The relevance to biological computation is also obvious. 
Papers must be concerned with mathematical logical approaches to fault 
tolerance, not simply fault tolerance.
Selected papers will appear in Logic Journal of the IGPL (Oxford U. 
Press).
