As the closing note let us quote the words of the Director General of UNESCO, Audrey Azoulay:
`In the twenty-first century — indeed, now more than ever — the discipline of logic is a particularly timely one, utterly vital to our societies and economies. Computer science and information and communications technology, for example, are rooted in logical and algorithmic reasoning.’
