This volume presents the refereed proceedings of the 10th International Conference on Deontic Logic in Computer Science, DEON 2010, held in Fiesole, Italy, in July 2010. The 18 revised papers included in the volume were carefully reviewed and selected from 34 submissions. Topics covered include connections preferences, deontic logic and contrary-to-duties, the use of input/output logic, the study of norm dynamics, models of agents and institutions, argumentation, compliance, and various alternative analyses of deontic notions.

This volume contains the invited and the contributed papers selected for p- th sentation at SOFSEM 2008, the 34 Conference on Current Trends in Theory and Practice of Computer Science, which was held January 19-25, 2008, in the Atrium Hotel, Novy ́ Smokovec, High Tatras in Slovakia. SOFSEM (originally SOFtware SEMinar), as an annual international c- ference devoted to the theory and practice of computer science, aims to foster cooperationamongprofessionalsfromacademiaandindustryworkinginallareas in this ?eld. Developing over the years from a local event to a fully international and well-established conference, contemporary SOFSEM continues to maintain the best of its original Winter School aspects, such as a high number of invited talks and in-depth coverage of novel research results in selected areas within computer science. SOFSEM 2008 was organized around the following tracks: - Foundations of Computer Science (Chair: Juhani Karhum ̈ aki) - Computing by Nature (Chair: Alberto Bertoni) - Networks, Security, and Cryptography (Chair: Bart Preneel) - Web Technologies (Chair: Pavol N ́ avrat) The SOFSEM 2008 Program Committee consisted of 75 international - perts, representing active areas of the SOFSEM 2008 tracks with outstanding expertise and an eye for current developments, evaluating the submissions with the help of 169 additional reviewers. An integral part of SOFSEM 2008 was the traditional Student Research - rum (chaired by Ma ́ria Bielikov ́ a), organized with the aim of presenting student projectsinthetheoryandpracticeofcomputerscienceandtogivestudentsfe- back on both originality of their scienti'c results and on their work in progress.
Basic Category Theory for Computer Scientists provides a straightforward presentation of the basic constructions and terminology of category theory, including limits, functors, natural transformations, adjoints, and cartesian closed categories. Category theory is a branch of pure mathematics that is becoming an increasingly important tool in theoretical computer science, especially in programming language semantics, domain theory, and concurrency, where it is already a standard language of discourse. Assuming a minimum of mathematical preparation, Basic Category Theory for Computer Scientists provides a straightforward presentation of the basic constructions and terminology of category theory, including limits, functors, natural transformations, adjoints, and cartesian closed categories. Four case studies illustrate applications of category theory to programming language design, semantics, and the solution of recursive domain equations. A brief literature survey offers suggestions for further study in more advanced texts. Contents Tutorial * Applications * Further Reading
Computational Thinking (CT) involves fundamental concepts and reasoning, distilled from computer science and other computational sciences, which become powerful general mental tools for solving problems, increasing efficiency, reducing complexity, designing procedures, or interacting with humans and machines. An easy-to-understand guidebook, From Computing to Computational Thinking gives you the tools for understanding and using CT. It does not assume experience or knowledge of programming or of a programming language, but explains concepts and methods for CT with clarity and depth. Successful applications in diverse disciplines have shown the power of CT in problem solving. The book uses puzzles, games, and everyday examples as starting points for discussion and for connecting abstract thinking patterns to real-life situations. It provides an interesting and thought-provoking way to gain general knowledge about modern computing and the concepts and thinking processes underlying modern digital technologies.
