This Festschrift volume is published in honor of Dexter Kozen on the occasion of his 60th birthday. Dexter Kozen has been a leader in the development of Kleene Algebras (KAs) and the contributions in this volume reflect the breadth of his work and influence.

The volume includes 19 full papers related to Dexter Kozen's research. They deal with coalgebraic methods; congruence closure; the completeness of various programming logics; decision procedures for logics; alternation; algorithms and complexity; and programming languages and program analysis.

The second part of this volume includes laudatios from several collaborators, students and friends, including the members of his current band.
