The Steering Committee expresses its solidarity with the Ukrainian people in their plight, calls for immediate peace, and is fully committed to peaceful co-operation, mutual understanding and tolerance across borders, and despite the current situation continues to hope for reflection, restraint and a swift end to the crisis.

is the eleventh of the series of international conferences ``Highlights of Logic, Games and Automata'', aiming at integrating the community working in algorithmic model theory, automata theory, databases, games for logic and verification, logic, and verification. Papers from these areas are dispersed across many conferences, which makes them difficult to follow. A visit to the Highlights conference should offer a wide picture of the latest research in the field and a chance to meet everybody in the community, not just those who happen to publish in one particular proceedings volume. There are no publications.

We encourage you to attend and present your best work, be it already published or not, at .
