The LICS Symposium is an annual international forum on theoretical and practical topics in computer science that relate to logic, broadly construed. The safety and well-being of all conference participants is our priority. After evaluating the ongoing COVID-19 situation, the decision has been made to transform the in-person component of the IEEE LICS 2021 conference into an all-digital conference experience – IEEE LICS 2021 will now be an online event. Therefore, IEEE LICS 2021 will no longer take place in Rome (Italy) and will instead take place virtually. The conference dates remain the same – June 29-July 2, 2021. Proceedings will not be cancelled, and publications will continue as planned.
