Update: The LICS and the ICALP steering committee have agreed together with the conference chairs in Beijing to relocate this joint conference. ICALP and LICS 2020 will take place in Saarbrücken, Germany, July 8-11 (with satellite workshops on July 6-7). We are very grateful to our colleagues in Beijing, for their initial efforts at organizing this meeting, to our colleagues from Saarbrücken, who generously accepted this challenging task, and to all members of our community who offered their help in this difficult situation.


The LICS Symposium is an annual international forum on theoretical and practical topics in computer science that relate to logic, broadly construed. LICS 2020 will be hosted in Saarbrücken, Germany during 8–11 July 2020, in co-location with ICALP 2020.
