The calculus of relations has been an important component of the development of logic and algebra since the middle of the nineteenth century, when Augustus De Morgan observed that since a horse is an animal we should be able to infer that the head of a horse is the head of an animal. For this, Aristotelian syllogistic does not suffice: We require relational reasoning. George Boole, in his Mathematical Analysis of Logic of 1847, initiated the treatment of logic as part of mathematics, specifically as part of algebra. Quite the opposite conviction was put forward early this century by Bertrand Russell and Alfred North Whitehead in their Principia Mathematica (1910 - 1913): that mathematics was essentially grounded in logic. Logic thus developed in two streams. On the one hand algebraic logic, in which the calculus of relations played a particularly prominent part, was taken up from Boole by Charles Sanders Peirce, who wished to do for the "calculus of relatives" what Boole had done for the calculus of sets. Peirce's work was in turn taken up by Schroder in his Algebra und Logik der Relative of 1895 (the third part of a massive work on the algebra of logic). Schroder's work, however, lay dormant for more than 40 years, until revived by Alfred Tarski in his seminal paper "On the calculus of binary relations" of 1941 (actually his presidential address to the Association for Symbolic Logic).

This book constitutes the proceedings of the 12 International Conference on Relational and Algebraic Methods in Computer Science, RAMICS 2011, held in Rotterdam, The Netherlands, in May/June 2011. This conference merges the RelMICS (Relational Methods in Computer Science) and AKA (Applications of Kleene Algebra) conferences, which have been a main forum for researchers who use the calculus of relations and similar algebraic formalisms as methodological and conceptual tools. Relational and algebraic methods and software tools turn out to be useful for solving problems in social choice and game theory. For that reason this conference included a special track on Computational Social Choice and Social Software. The 18 papers included were carefully reviewed and selected from 27 submissions. In addition the volume contains 2 invited tutorials and 5 invited talks.

RelMiCS/AKA is the main forum for therelationalcalculusasa conceptualandmethodologicaltoolandfor topics relatedtoKleenealgebras.Withinthisgeneraltheme,theconferenceseriesis- voted to the theory of relation algebras, Kleene algebras and related formalisms as well as to their diverse applications in software engineering, databases and arti'cial intelligence. This year, special focus was on formal methods, logics of programs and links with neighboring disciplines. This diversity is re'ected by the contributions to this volume. The ProgrammeCommittee selected 25 technical contributions out of 44 i- tial submissions from 14 countries. Each paper was refereed by at least three reviewers on its originality, technical soundness, quality of presentation and r- evance to the conference. The programme included three invited lectures by distinguished experts in the area: "Weak Kleene Algebra and Computation Trees" by Ernie Cohen (Microsoft, USA), "Finite Symmetric Integral Relation Algebras with no 3-Cycles" by Roger Maddux (Iowa State University, USA), and "Computations and Relational Bundles" by Je?

This volume contains the proceedings of the 11th International Conference on RelationalMethodsinComputerScience(RelMiCS11)andthe6thInternational Conference on Applications of Kleene Algebra (AKA 6). The joint conference took place in Doha, Quatar, November 1–5, 2009. Its purpose was to bring - gether researchersfrom various subdisciplines of computer science, mathematics and related ?elds who use the calculus of relations and/or Kleene algebra as methodological and conceptual tools in their work. This conference is the joint continuation of two di?erent strands of meetings. The seminars of the RelMiCS series were held in Schloss Dagstuhl (Germany) in January 1994, Parati (Brazil) in July 1995, Hammamet (Tunisia) in January 1997, Warsaw (Poland) in September 1998, Qu´ ebec (Canada) in January 2000, and Oisterwijk (The Netherlands) in October 2001. The conference on Appli- tions of Kleene Algebra started as a workshop, also held in Schloss Dagstuhl, in February2001.Tojointhesetwothemesinoneconferencewasmainlymotivated by the substantial common interests and overlap of the two communities. Over the years this has led to fruitful interactions and openened new and intere- ing research directions. Joint meetings have been held in Malente (Germany) in May 2003, in St Catherines (Canada) in February 2005, in Manchester (UK) in August/September 2006 and in Frauenw¨ orth (Germany) in April 2008. This volume contains 24 contributions by researchersfrom all overthe world.

Computer vision solutions used to be very specific and difficult to adapt to different or even unforeseen situations. The current development is calling for simple to use yet robust applications that could be employed in various situations. This trend requires the reassessment of some theoretical issues in computer vision. A better general understanding of vision processes, new insights and better theories are needed. The papers selected from the conference staged in Dagstuhl in 1996 to gather scientists from the West and the former eastern-block countries address these goals and cover such fields as 2D images (scale space, morphology, segmentation, neural networks, Hough transform, texture, pyramids), recovery of 3-D structure (shape from shading, optical flow, 3-D object recognition) and how vision is integrated into a larger task-driven framework (hand-eye calibration, navigation, perception-action cycle).
