About this book


This Festschrift was published in honor of Catuscia Palamidessi on the occasion of her 60th birthday.

It features 6 laudations, which are available in the front matter of the volume, and 25 papers by close collaborators and friends. The papers are organized in topical sections named: concurrency; logic and constraint programming; security and privacy; and models and puzzles.

These contributions are a tribute to Catuscia Palamidessi’s intellectual depth, vision, passion for science, and tenacity in solving technical problems. They also reflect the breadth and impact of her work. Her scientific interests include, in chronological order, principles of programming languages, concurrency theory, security, and privacy.
