This workshop aims to bring together researchers working in category theory,  logic, universal algebra, relational and graph theoretic foundations for computer science and mathematics in order to highlight recent advances in these fields and to facilitate dialogue between the different camps. Of particular interest is work which spans two or more of these areas.
