The Association for Symbolic Logic is an international organization supporting research and critical studies in logic. Its primary function is to provide an effective forum for the presentation, publication, and critical discussion of scholarly work in this area of inquiry.
Logic is an ancient discipline that has undergone striking modern developments through the introduction of rigorous formal methods, stimulated largely by foundational problems in mathematics. "Symbolic logic" is a term intended to encompass the entire field of logical inquiry, undertaken in this modern spirit.
The Association was founded in 1936, at a time when great advances in logic were beginning to be made. Its first members were mainly mathematicians and philosophers who perceived a common ground and sought to strengthen it. Recent research in other areas such as computer science, linguistics, and cognitive science has also been inspired by logic, and the current membership and activities of the Association reflects such expanding interests.

The Lecture Notes in Logic series serves researchers, teachers and students in the field of symbolic logic, broadly interpreted. The aim of the series is to bring publications to the logic community with the least possible delay and to provide rapid dissemination of the latest research. Scientific quality is the overriding criterion by which submissions are evaluated.
