This volume contains the papers which were presented at the second workshop "Computer Science Logic" held in Duisburg, FRG, October 3-7, 1988. These proceedings cover a wide range of topics both from theoretical and applied areas of computer science. More specifically, the papers deal with problems arising at the border of logic and computer science: e.g. in complexity, data base theory, logic programming, artificial intelligence, and concurrency. The volume should be of interest to all logicians and computer scientists working in the above fields.
